Former Blackburn Rovers striker Osayamen Osawe who scored a hattrick five days ago for German side Kaiserslautern scored the winner as they edge Greuther Furth 1-0.

The goal was his fourth in two games but his fifth overall this season, with the hattrick against Bochum on Monday complementing his goal against Dynamo Dresden.

He joined Kaiserslautern in the summer from third division side Hallescher FC where he spent three seasons, and opened his goal account for his new side against them in a cup tie.

23 year old Osawe was born in Nigeria but moved to England at a very young age which qualifies him to represent them at international level.

However he is yet to be called up by any nation, but a call up to the Super Eagles looks more likely for the forward, as the German coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr is reportedly keeping close tabs on him.
