Onyekuru hits brace in Galatasaray Super Lig win
Takes his tally to 5 in 9 for Turkish giants
Nigerian Super Eagles striker, Henry Onyekuru scored a brace for Galatasaray as they defeated Kayserispor by three goals to nil in their Turkish Super Lig match on Saturday.
Galatasaray took the lead in the 44th minute through Colombian striker, Radamel Falcao before Onyekuru was introduced into the fray after 68 minutes of the game. The 24 year old made it 2-0 to his side when he was on hand to stab home the rebound after a shot from Falcao had come off the woodwork in the 81st minute. He completed his brace in the 89th minute when he faces through to meet Sofiane Feghouli’s perfect through ball and calmly finished one on one by tucking the ball under the keeper to make it 3-0 for his side.
Onyekuru, who was placed on the standby list for the Super Eagles AFCON 2021 Qualifiers later this month has now scored 5 goals in 9 appearances since he returned to Galatasaray on loan.
