Nigeria midfielder, Rita Chikwelu, started life at her new club in the Spanish Primera División de la Liga de Fútbol Femenino in grand style.

The former Super Falcons captain netted the second goal in Madrid CFF 4-1 thrashing of Athletic Club at the Estadio Municipal Nuevo Matapiñonera on Sunday afternoon.

Chikwelu rose highest after just eight minutes into her debut to head home Estela Fernández' corner kick to double Madrid CFF's advantage.

The 30-year-old creative midfielder saw 76 minutes of action before she was replaced by Mari.

Chikwelu joined the Madrid-based side in the January transfer window from the Swedish side, Kristianstad.

She also previously played for Umeå IK in Sweden, and FC United and Finland.
