UEFA Champions League

Super Eagles’ Prospect Scores Crucial Champions League Goal

The race to get into the group stage of the UEFA Champions League is understandably a fierce one.

This perhaps justifies the wild jubilation that greeted FC Salzburg’s hard fought 2-1 win over Brondby in Tuesday’s Champions League playoff fixture.

One of the goal scorers for the Austrian club was German Nigeria-born striker Karim Adeyemi.

FC Salzburg started on a shaky note; falling behind to an early goal in the 4th minute scored by Mikael Uhre who unleashed an unstoppable shot past goalkeeper Philipp Koehn after receiving a pass from Ghana prospect Kevin Mensah.

However, Adeyemi showed up and pulled his side level 10 minutes into the second half after profiting from good work by Brenden Aaronson.

With the game looking destined to end in a 1-1 draw, Aaronson scored the winner in the 90th minute – showing great composure to bury Oumar Solet’s pass past goalkeeper Mads Hermansen.

This late winner Adeyemi described as a deserving one for his team and the fans as a whole.
