BAS 1-4 GEN: Emmanuel Orban's Outstanding Display Explains Why He Should Be Called Up By The Super Eagles

Gift Emmanuel Orban scored the fastest-ever hat-trick in men's UEFA competition as Gent defeated Istanbul Basaksehir 4-1 to advance to the UEFA Europa Conference League quarter-finals in tonights game.

Orban stole the show in the first half, scoring three goals in three minutes to dash any hopes of the hosts' progress. In the 31st minute, the Nigerian-born striker slotted home his first of the evening from close range before blasting a long-range right-footed strike past goalkeeper Volkan Babacan just seconds later.

He then completed his hat-trick on a rebound before Gents' fourth goal was scored by Cuypers. The home team came back stronger in the second half, but only managed one goal. Gent won the game by a score of 4-1.

So far, the Orban appears to be in top form. The 20-year-old scored four goals as Gent defeated Zulte Waregem 6-2 in the Belgian Pro League over the weekend. He has now scored registered a goal or more in his last four games, which is mind blowing. He is putting in an outstanding performance this season, proving that Victor Osimhen isn't the only Nigerian striker causing defenders sleepless nights this season.

Well, I believe it is correct to insinuate that Gift Emmanuel Orban's outstanding performance in today's game explains why he deserves a call-up to the Super Eagles Team. Orban is quickly establishing himself as one of the best strikers in the world, and he has shown that he should be called up to the Super Eagles squad when Jose Peseiro announces his selections for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against Guinea-Bissau. This could result in Orban playing alongside Osimhen.

What can you say about this?
