Onome, her compatriot, Regina Otu and the rest of Minsk players fought like trojans to triumph 4-2 on penalties after both regulation and extra time ended 1-1 at Stadyen SDYuShOR-6, Grodno.

She is particularly happy with how the victors held out to secure the important win despite being reduced to nine players, with Natalia Asmykovich and 23' Anastasia Pobegaylo handed the marching order on 23 and 110 minutes respectively.

"I must say that I'm super proud of my team for a hard fight yesterday to our victory, that spirit of fighting till the end was everything 120 minutes plus two red cards," stated the 38-year-old with one goal in five matches for Minsk since rejoining them recently.

Onome, who in 2019 became the first African to play in five World Cup tournaments, is on second stint with the Belarusian Premier League side, having earlier played there from 2014–2016, scoring seven goals in 37 matches.

FK Minsk will on 6 August 2021 host Dinamo-BGU FK at the next stage of the Belarusian Women's Cup.
