He was, however, heavily involved in the build up to their only goal of the game, which ended up being a consolation for the team.
Disappointing end to the European competitions for the following Nigerians
Victor Boniface’s Union St Gilloise were dumped out by Bayer Leverkusen in the EuropaLeague, while Terem Moffi’s and Gift Orban’s Gent were knocked out from the ConferenceLeague.
Three of those goals came in a single game a threeminute hattrick that is the fastest in the club’s history as well as the history of the Conference League.
He could have made it six in the first leg of the tie but the woodwork denied him.
The game turned around after that and David Moyes’ side replied with four goals, three of which came in the second half before the hour mark.
Two goals from Michail Antonio, a penalty for Lucas Paqueta and a rare Declan Rice strike that is being considered as the goal of the tournament turned the scoreline on its head and sent the Belgian team along with Orban crashing out.
It is a tournament to remember for the young striker, whose brief stint with Gent has already attracted interest from the Premier League and other clubs across Europe.
