Two orthodox Nigerian number nines, Victor Osimhen and Paul Onuachu, are enjoying a red-hot streak in front of goal at the moment, with both strikers on target for their respective European teams on Sunday, November 25.
In a high scoring affair at the Daknamstadion (Lokeren), Sporting Charleroi edged Lokeren 4-2 in a six-goal thriller.
Victor Osimhen came off the bench in the 70th minute and spent only eleven minutes on the pitch before doubling Sporting Charleroi’s advantage.
The Golden Boot winner at the 2015 Fifa U17 World Cup has been directly involved in 7 goals (6 goals and 1 assist) in his last nine matches in the Belgian First Division A.
In a Danish Superliga, there was disappointment for FC Midtjylland who were beaten 2-1 by FC Copenhagen in a top of the table clash at Telia Parken.
On a personal level, former Dream Team VI invitee Paul Onuachu would be delighted to get on the score-sheet for the third successive game in the division after finding the net in the 78th minute.
Only Brøndby’s Poland star Kamil Wilczek, who has struck 12 times, has scored more goals than Onuachu in the league this season. The Nigerian has ten goals to his name.
