Fit again former Flying Eagles forward Suleiman Abdullahi scored his first goal for German side Eintracht Braunschweig, but ended up on the losing side as they fell 1-2 to St. Pauli.

Abdullahi joined Eintracht Braunschweig in the summer from Norwegian side Viking and started off on a high with goals for the team in their pre season games.

However he picked up ligament damage in their last pre season game, which required surgery and ruled him out of almost all their games in the first stanza of the Bundesliga 2.

He has been slowly eased into action, making substitutes appearances before finally getting off the mark against St. Pauli in today’s game.

Daddy like he is fondly called by friends and admirers in Kaduna state, Nigeria came on in the 59th minute for Dominik Kumbela with his team 2-0 down at home, and he scored what ended up as a late consolation on the stroke of full time.
