Former Nigeria junior international Olarenwaju Kayode scored one of the goals for Austrian side Austria Wien, as they recovered from going behind twice to draw 3-3 with Italian giants AS Roma.

Raphael Holzhauser gave the Austrians a shock lead in the 16th minute. but two goals from Egyptian super star Stephan El Shaarawy ensured Roma went into the half time break leading 2-1.

A third from Alessandro Florenzi gave them a 3-1 lead, nine minutes after the half hour mark and at that point, the Italians appear to be cruising to a routine win over their visitors.

However, a goal eight minute from time by Dominik Prokop gave Austria Wien a life line and Kayode ensured they return back home with a share of the spoils with a strike two minutes later to bring scores to 3-3.

The goal is his fourth in the Europa league, after finding the back of the net with a brace against Kukesi and another against Rosenborg. However overall he has seven goals this season with three other goals in the league.

23 year old Kayode scored 13 goals last season in his debut season in Austria, same amount of goal he scored in his final season in Israel before his move in 2015.
