Nigerian forward Orji Okonkwo posted another man of the match performance as Bologna beat hard fighting Atalanta 4-2 in a heavily entertaining Primavera game.

He got off the mark with a brace in his first game for the team two weeks ago, and his latest strike which came in the 42nd minute helped his team level scores before winning the tie 4-2.

Okonkwo joined Bologna in the summer, in a transfer first reported by Owngoalnigeria.com, turning down the chance to join Serie B side Spezia,where he spent six month before heading to the U-17 World Cup with Nigeria last year.

He was among the few shining light in Nigeria U-20 failed attempt to qualify for next year Africa Youth Championship, scoring in the ill-fated 2-3 loss which ended their chances of qualifying.

Already he is rated as one of the best upcoming players in Nigeria, a tag he has lived up to since joining Bologna, where he could make his debut for the first team, if he sustains or improved on his fine performances for the Primavera.
