Super Eagles striker makes history in Europe

Super Eagles striker Olanrewaju Kayode made history for Turkish club Gazisehir Gaziantep as he became the first player to score a goal in the Turkish topflight for the modest club after scoring a brace in the 4-1 defeat of Genclerbirligi.

Kayode celebrates one of his goals for Gazisehir Gaziantep at the weekend. He has now entered the club’s history books as the first player to score a goal for them in the Turkish Super Lig.

Kayode, who is on a season-long loan from Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk, opened the scoring in the 32nd minute to give his club a 1-0 lead Monday night.

Kayode is seen here celebrating a goal for his parent club, Shakhter Donetsk of Ukraine. He is on loan in Turkey from the Ukrainian giants.

He then made it 2-0 in the 40th minute, when he converted a spot kick.

The former Asec Mimosas of Cote D’Ivoire star has thus entered the club’s record books as the first player to score a Super Lig goal for them.

He has played in Cote d’Ivoire, Switzerland, Spain, Israel and Austria before now.
