Onuachu scores eight league goal of season for Midtjylland


Nigerian international Paul Onuachu scored a goal for FC Midtjylland who ran out 4-2 winners over AC Horsens in a six-goal thriller.

Onauchu, 23, scored the 4th goal for Midtjylland in the 87th minute to put the game which was nervy at 3-2 at the time he scored beyond the visitors who were chases an equalizer.

Onauchu has now scored 8 goals for Midtjylland from 10 games played this season.

Interestingly, the tall lanky forward, whose physical stature is built in the mold of legendary Super Eagles super star Kanu Nwankwo, has come on as a sub three times out of the ten matches he has been involved in.

Onauchu was booked in the 55th minute, but was resilient enough to notch a goal late on in the game.

His Nigerian team-mate Rilwan Hassan missed the encounter due to injury.

The win places Midtjylland in first place with 28 points from 13 matches, two points above Nordsjælland who have a game in hand.

Up next for Onauchu and his team-mates will be a clash against OB FC on Wednesday in a DPB (Denmark FA Cup) before filling out against Lyngby in the league on Sunday.
