19-year-old Nigerian hot-shot, Adeleke Akinola Akinyemi continued his fantastic form in the Latvian League, grabbing a brace in a 4-1 trouncing of Valmiera Glass, with another Nigerian Tosin Aiyegun also on target, AOIFootball.com reports.

Akinola, who has scored in his last three fixtures, opened scoring after just four minutes to put his side ahead before Eduards Tidenbergs doubled Ventspils lead seven minutes later.

The away side did pull a goal back via the boot of Maris Barkovskis in the 29th minute before Akinola restored their two-goal lead three minutes later to make it 3-1.

There was however still time for Tosin Aiyegun to add a fourth to put the icing on the cake when he lashed onto a powerful cross in the 52nd minute to make it 4-1 on the night.

With his brace, Akinola has now scored 11 goals in just 14 league matches, 6 in just two Europa League qualification matches.

Ventspils will now switch attention to their crunch clash against French side Bordeaux on Thursday.
