Red hot Paul Onuachu

Nigeria international, Paul Onuachu continued his fine form in front of goal on Friday evening as his solitary strike was all Fc Midtjylland needed to claim all 3 points against SonderjyskE in match day 12 of the Denmark Superligaen.

The 23-year- old right foot striker, who has been banging in goals from all angles, confirmed his status as the most prolific Nigeria striker currently in Europe when he scored his 7th goal of the league in just 6 starts for the table toppers.

After a drab and uneventful first half which saw an unfortunate injury occur to Fc midtjylland and Nigerian midfielder Rilwan Hassan, Paul broke the deadlock in the 73rd minute when he calmly controlled a pass from Gustav Wikheim before holding of the last defender to coolly slot the ball past the goalkeeper, sending the away fans into a frenzy.

The goal was Paul’s 7th league strike in just 6 starts, making him a serious contender for the Super Eagles match against the Desert Foxes of Algeria and of course, subsequent games of team.

The striker has now scored a goal every 86 minutes and has a goal average of 0.8 per game.

The win moves FcMidtjylland to the top of the table momentarily with 25 points from 12 games, 2 points above second place Fc Nordsjaelland who have played a game less.
