Onazi Bags Brace On Debut In Turkey

Super Eagles midfielder Ogenyi Onazi got a brace on his debut for his new side Trabzonspor to help them beat Kasimpasa 2-0 in a Turkish Super Lig game.

The former Lazio ace grabbed his brace in the 20th and one minute of time added on after regulation time to hand Trabzonspor all three points in their first game of the season.

Known for his hardwork in the middle the 23 year old has broken his inglorious record of not scoring more than once in a season since moving to Europe in 2012, where he turned out for Italian Serie A side Lazio for four seasons.

His move to Turkey was one of the shock of the transfer window in Italy but going by the way he has taken to life in his new surrounding, he could be a bargain buy for the Turks.
