  • Here are the top stories

CZECH REPUBLIC

Peter Olayinka returned from a lengthy suspension in style as he scored Slavia Prague's second goal in their [3-0] victory over Bohemians 1905. Centre-back Igoh Ogbu produced a sterling defensive display to help the home team keep their first clean sheet in four matches across all competitions.

ENGLAND

Frank Onyeka made a key tackle and created a chance after being introduced at halftime during Brentford's [1-1] home draw with high-flying Aston Villa.

Taiwo Awoniyi put in a good shift, while Emmanuel Dennis was brought on late in Nottingham Forest's hard-fought [3-2] defeat against Liverpool at Anfield.

At the King Power Stadium, Kelechi Iheanacho scored from the spot, while Wilfred Ndidi also put in a good shift as Leicester City halted a run of ten games without a win with a [2-1] comeback victory over Wolves.

Alex Iwobi was one of Everton's better players, creating 4 goalscoring chances as the Toffees held Crystal Palace to a goalless draw despite finishing the game with ten men.

GERMANY

Anthony Ujah scored the consolation goal for Eintracht Braunschweig as they succumbed to a narrow [1-2] defeat at home against FC Magdeburg in a 2.Bundesliga clash. It was the 32-year-old forward's eighth league goal of the campaign. The former Union Berlin man also has three assists in his 24 appearances.

RUSSIA

Chinonyerem Macleans opened the scoring in a player-of-the-match performance, inspiring Lokomotiv Moscow Women to a 3-0 victory over Krylya Sovetov.

SLOVAKIA

Kenneth Ikugar came off the bench to net an 83rd-minute winner for FC ViOn Zlaté Moravce in the hard-earned [0-1] win away against Skalica in their Super Liga play-off Group B tie.

SPAIN

Kelechi Nwakali saw 53 minutes of action as SD Ponferradina stumbled to a heavy [4-1] home league defeat to Andorra in the Segunda Division. A second-half red card to Brazil's Derik Lacerda did not help the home team's cause.

USA

Chinonso Offor was impressive for CF Montreal, forcing an own goal and helping his side to a [2-0] home victory over New York Red Bulls
