The European football governing body UEFA has praised Nigerian youngster Stephen Odey after netting his 7th goal of the season for his on loan club, in their 2-1 comeback victory over OB Odense FC on Sunday evening.

The goal against OB Odense football club has now taken his total goals for the new club to 7 in just 9 matches played.

Reacting after Stephen Odey netted his 7th goal for Randers football club, UEFA posted on their verified Twitter handle on Monday that;

"🤩 What a start to life at Randers! 

🇳🇬 Stephen Odey has scored 7 goals in 9 games (all competitions) since joining on loan 💪."

The Nigerian international will now be looking forward to continuing his impressive performance when Randers football club play their next game in the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday night.
