Veteran Victor Ezeji made history Monday when he came on as a late replacement for Heartland to feature in his 20th season in the Nigeria league.

Ezeji came on in the 84th minute for Fortune Omoniwari in a rescheduled Nigeria league match at Bayelsa United on Monday.

Earlier this season, it looked like Ezeji had retired from the game, but the League Management Company will then sanction the striker’s switch to Heartland.

The 34-year-old Ezeji has featured for Sharks, Dolphins, Enyimba and Sunshine Stars in the past 20 seasons, scoring in all these campaigns.

He was the goal king of the Nigeria league in 2007.
