Onuachu Hits 1st Danish Superliga Hat Trick Of Season In Midtjylland’s Big Win

By Johnny Edward:
Nigerian striker Paul Onuachu scored his first hat-trick of the season for FC Midtjylland who defeated FC Nordsjaelland 4-1 in a Danish Superliga game on Saturday Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

It was Onuachu’s second career hat-trick for Midtjylland. The strikes took his tally to eight so far this season.

The 24-year shot his side into the lead in the 33rd minute, but his goal was cancelled out by Godsway Donyoh for Nordsjaelland in the 50th minute.


The former FC Ebiedei forward restored his side’s lead three minutes later with a stunning strike.

Onuachu completed his hat-trick 12 minutes from time after he was set up by Riliwan Hassan.

He was subbed off for Mayron George with nine minutes left.

The win extends Midtjylland’s lead at the top by three points ahead of second placed Copenhagen.

    Congratulations Onuachu. No doubts, you have all the qualities as a striker. Keep it up.

    If we have Onuachu, Adi, Osimeh, Chukwueze and the likes in Eagles plan, we shouldn’t be worried for any replacements.

    But in Africa, I don’t think we have structures in our systems. Talent is wasting. God bless Nigeria!!!

    At the moment l can’t envisage whom he can bench as a striker apart from Success but, in Cameroon proper next year, it will be injustices not extent the desirable invitation to this deserving Nigerian who is banging in goals in Europe. Tell me who is banging in goals more than Onuachu in the World right now other then Ighalo (20)? Onuachu scored 8 goals so far this season. He must and he should be in Cameroon next year, please.

    @Edoman, check your facts well before posting nonsense. Who told you Onuachu has scored 8 this season?? and even though he has, in how many games has he been able to score those 8 goals ?? For your info, Onuachu has scored 7 in 24 apperances for FC Midtyland this season. Even the 2015 sensation “Victor Oshimen” who just joined Sporting Chaleroi has scored 5 goals in 7 games whereas am very sure Onuachu has played more than 7 games for his club this season. I don’t expect to see him(Onuachu) in the Super Eagles shirt anytime soon cuz he hasn’t proven to be a lethal No.9 for me.

    • Onuachu has actually scored 10 goals this season. 7 in the league, 2 in Europa qualification Games and one in their cup. 18 games.

      However, calling up new players is not always about benching the starting lineup, it can also be to provide support on the bench, competition for places and to give experience in the national set up.

      I would say other players are ahead of him particularly S Odey in FC Zurich

    I don’t expect to see him anywhere near the SuperEagles shirt at all. How on Earth will he bench Nassarra Success??? How can you compare a player playing in the Danish league to a player in the EPL??? Did you watch Success this weekend??? Certainly not.

    Do you remember a certain Sylvester Igboun?? Who was scoring goals for fun at FC Midtylland in Denmark. By the time he was invited to the national he couldn’t do jack before he was axed.
    Any attacking player that will break into the must be exceptionally talented to any of our current attacking sensations.

    Its time Onuachi left the Danish league if he’s serious about playing for Nigeria.He has been there a while and if he’s that good football scouts would have pulled him away from Denmark ages ago.In other words,comparing him with a proven player like Success is disrespectful.
    Victor Osimhen scored a brace yesterday and has impressed since moving to Belgium.This bean poled striker is on the radar of the gaffer and might get an invite for the inconsequential game against Seychelles that’s if we could get a result from the South African match.Fingers crossed.But for now Inform Ighalo and Success will fill in the slots for the two strikers position until someone comes up with something different and better.
    God bless Nigeria!

  • Our boys should not change personnel before the South Africa game unless we are forced to through injuries and suspensions. As such the clamour for Alhassan and Igbekeme to bolster the defensive midfield bench where Ndidi is suspended and Onazi and Mikel are hit and miss with their fitness.

    I’ll rather we stick with the strike force that has started showing promise: Ighalo and Musa (7 goals/5 assists between them in the last three matches) Kalu the third. Success in the bench.

    Osimhen, Orji, Chukwueze, Nwakali, Awoniyi need to spend time with the under 23 team whilst they build up experience and consistency.

    Give Stephen Odey the opportunity against the Seychelles in the final game if we beat South Africa.

  • @BigD dont ever come here to post again. how on earth wil u pipu compare onuachu ahead of success and osimhen 24 games 7 goals. u even said odey shld invite ahead of osimhen, chukxwueze. nawao! abeg pipu come and see wat humanbeing is posting ooo.

    • Lol, we all have our own opinions. You are free to express yours (you didn’t offer an opinion) instead of running down sometime else’s.

      I stand by what I said. Chukwueze has played a couple of games in Europa League and is not a regular for his club yet.
      Osimhen has struggled for three years since the under 17 world cup in 2015 and has played what? 5 or 6 good games and all of a sudden he is ripe for Super Eagles?
      Both of them need to be in the under 20 flying eagles.

      Odey was one of the best in the Nigerian Professional Football League with MFM before continuing the good work this season in a European premier league scoring goals consistently for three years. He was top scorer for MFM and he is currently one of the top scorers for Nigerian Professional footballers worldwide this season.
      He has so far scored more goals than Osimhen and Chukwueze combined this season and over the past three years.

    Folks, calm down. Do not take it personal. We are all in the speculative zone where none of us has any ability to decide who should and should not play for Nigeria. Therefore, any one is free to express his or her opinion without getting finger jabs at each other’s nose. Femi, thank you for telling me something l did not know as BigD equally told you something you, Femi, did not know too. The space is infinite for every one to play without jabbing. Ok.
