Forgotten Super Eagles midfielder Raheem Lawal scored twice to inspire his side Kayserispor to a 3-2 win over Eddy Onazi’s Trabzonspor in the Turkish Super Lig.
Onazi and Lawal were on from the start for their respective teams. Onazi’s side drew first blood in the 34th minute when Hugo Rodallega gave them the lead, however Lawal ensured his side went into the half time break level with the equaliser four minutes before the break.
With scores at 2-2, Lawal popped up with what ended as the winning goal, when he headed home a cross from Wellington to put his team 3-2 up.
The match hero was substitute on the dot of regulation time to great applause from the away fans, as despite picking up a booking few minutes before he scored the winner, the Nigerian was by far the best player of the game.
Onazi was also shown a yellow card two minutes into time added on after regulation time for unsportsmanlike conduct as the Super Eagles deputy captain let the frustration of the defeat get to him.
