Chinedu Obasi scored a brace last night for his German Bundesliga 1 club,Schalke 04 in their 6-0 mauling of a selected team from two lower division sides,TSV Steinbach and SSV Langenaubach. In the absence of the national team it was at the end of 6: 0 for the Champions League hopefuls.
The match,organised to keep players who are not on international duty for their countries fit and active,Obasi opened the floodgate of goals on 47 minutes before a certain Barnetta mae it two in the 50th minute.
The Nigerian,who was stopped from making his Eagles return by Schalke due to the fact that his international passport has been taking to the British Embassy for Visa procurement pounced again on 55 minutes to make it 3-0 before Neustädter (56), Boateng (57)and Kehrer (89) added the fourth,fifth and sixth goals respectively.
Obasi would later express his disappointment at not making his widely anticipated return to the Eagles nest but argued that he couldn’t have called the bluff of his club.
