Flames defender Charles Petro staked his claim in Tiraspol Sheriff starting line-up when he scored in a 7–0 victory over Dinamo Auto in the Moldovan National Division on Saturday.
Petro was excited with his performance.
“It feels great to score and help my team get maximum points,” he said.
The Malawian was named in Sheriff first 11 and took just 36 minutes to register his name on the score-sheet after Thill had opened the flood gates on 10 minutes.
Kolovos and Castaneda each scored a brace, with Nikolov scoring the other goal for the Moldovan champions.
This could be a boost for Petro as he will be hoping to keep his place in the crucial Uefa Champions League clash against Real Madrid on Tuesday.
The former Nyasa Big Bullets star was not included in the match day squad as Sheriff defeated Shakhtar Donetsk 2–0 in the opening match of Uefa Champions league.
