Nigerian duo of Rilwan Hassan and Paul Onuachu continue to show their worth at Danish club FC Midtjylland as they both scored in their 4-2 comeback win over Astana in a friendly game, AOIFootball.com reports.
Astana took the lead after scoring two quick-fire goals via Marin Tomasov in the fifth and seventh minute.
But Midtjylland halved the deficit three minutes later through Mayron George before Rilwan Hassan equalized five minutes later to put his side level.
After a plethora of substitutions in the second half, Midtjylland went ahead for the first time in the tie when Gustav Tang made it 3-2 six minutes after the hour mark before the club’s leading goal scorer, Onuachu completed the rout on the dot of 90 minutes to make it 4-2.
The 24-year-old Nigerian continues to be linked with a move away from the club after an impressive first stanza of the league which saw him score 12 goals to help his side maintain their push on league leaders Kobenhavn.
Midtjylland will wrap up their mid-season friendlies with a game against Chinese champions Shanghai SIPG on Saturday before returning to the league to face Vendsyssel FF next Saturday on matchday 21.
