Super Eagles striker Victor Boniface introduced his grandmother to his Bayer Leverkusen teammates after their game against Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga.

The Nigerian international kept Xabi Alonso's side's unbeaten run intact as he was on target against Borussia Dortmund on Sunday evening.

Leverkusen were on the verge of suffering their first loss of the season after Julian Ryerson gave Dortmund the lead in the fifth minute, but a 79th-minute goal from Boniface earned the Die Werkself a deserved point.
