Nigerian Striker Osawe Improves Goal Tally In Germany With Another Goal For Kaiserslautern


23 year old Nigerian forward Osayamen Osawe scored his sixth goal of the season for German side Kaiserslautern to help them to a 3-0 win over Sandhausen.

The forward was introduced in the 70th minute, and nine minutes later scored the third and final goal for his side to round up a comfortable victory for Kaiserslautern, which takes them to 11th position on the second division standings in Germany.

Osawe joined Kaiserslautern in the summer after scoring 17 goals in two seasons with third division side Hallescher, he is presently four goals short of his last season tally of 10 goals from 20 games in a tougher league in just few games.

Born in England to Nigerian parents, he had a short spell at English side Blackburn Rovers before trying out at Accrington Stanley, Hyde United and Southport before moving to Germany.

Eligible for both Nigeria and England, the power playing forward is yet to be capped by both nations at any level, no thanks to the slow progress of his career during his teen years.
