Super Eagles new strike sensational, Paul Onuachu was the star for FC Midtjylland as he scored twice in their 4-0 thrashing of Odense Boldklub to reach the final of the DBU Pokalen, reports.
Still smarting from his first Super Eagles goal against Egypt last week in Asaba, the lanky forward was deployed to lead his side’s attack as he went in search of his first goal in over a month, having failed to score in any of his last five club games.
After a cagey opening half hour, the host took the lead, 14 minutes to half time when Troels Klove put through his own goal to hand the host a 1-0 lead going into the half time break.
Onuachu then turned up the heat in the second half as he made it 2-0, two minutes after the restart after slotting home from a Rafal Kurzawa assist to end his five-match goal drought for the Danish giants.
With the visitors running out of ideas, the 24-year-old showed good composure again to make it 3-0 on the 71st minute as the host confirmed their place in May’s final.
The Nigerian was then withdrawn five minutes from time before Gustav Wikheim added more glamour to the scores to complete a 4-0 demolition of their host.
With his brace, the AFCON 2019 hopeful has now scored 19 goals in all competitions this term, making him one of the country’s most deadliest forwards heading into the Nations Cup in Egypt.
