He is hoping to make the squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and has vowed to work harder in order to continue representing the Super Eagles.
According to Onuachu: “I am very happy to score my first Nigerian goal in such a nice way, but it was only one game.
To be honest I was also surprised that it came that early in the game but this is football and I can only thank my team-mates.
I still have a lot of work to do because my dream is to continue to represent my country.
I would love to play for Nigeria in the Nations Cup but I must fight hard to earn a place among the squad.”
Onuachu who has 14 league goals for Midtjylland this season will look to continue the impressive form when his side take on Nordsjælland on Saturday.
