Plaudits for Orban after Anderlecht stunner

Nigerian striker Gift Orban has received praise for his efforts in the top division of Belgium less than a month after making his debut for KAA Gent. The talented Nigerian player has scored three goals in four league games since moving from the Norwegian club Stabaek to the Belgian League in January. Buffalos goalkeeper Paul Nardi has heaped praise on the 20-year-old after his stunning goal in Gent's 1-0 victory over Anderlecht on Sunday in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League. The attacker's instinct for scoring was praised by the 28-year-old French shot blocker, who said that not even the finest goalies would have been able to get a grip of the ball. A fantastically brilliant goal from behind was scored, Nardi stated, according to HLN. You saw that there are stunning bulbs right next to the crossroads; they are stunning and fantastic. No goalkeeper is going to get that ball anymore, in my opinion. I still saw the goalkeeper attempting, but not even Thibaut Courtois. Such aims are nothing short of spectacular to experience, especially for your audience in that ambience.

The team of Hein Vanhaezebrouck is aiming for a Top 4 finish as they are now fifth in the Belgian Pro League standings, one point behind fourth-place Club Brugge. After making his debut for the Buffalos last month, the winter acquisition has had a strong start to life in Belgium, scoring four goals in six outings across all competitions. In addition, he was named Gantoise Player of the Month for February, and one of his goals against Westerlo was named Goal of the Month for the same month. The attacker will look to carry on his strong play when De Buffalo hosts Istanbul Basaksehir on Thursday in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
