Red Hot Former Flying Eagles Striker Suleiman Abdullahi Hit Brace In Germany


Former Nigeria junior international Suleiman Abdullahi continued his fine form in front of goal in Germany for second division side Eintracht Braunschweig with a brace in their 3-1 away win against Erzgebirge Aue.


21 year old Abdullahi bagged his brace in the 13th and 71st minute, with his first goal helping his side draw level after they went behind to a 12th minute goal by Pascal Koepke.

Abdullahi lasted 89 minutes before he was substituted to a standing ovation by the travelling fans for Christoffer Nyman, although he picked up a booking in the 73rd minute for excessive celebration after his goal.

The brace means he now has 5 goals in 17 games for 12th placed Eintracht Braunschweig, but more importantly he has found the back of the net 8 times in his last 7 games.

A near 1 million Euros signing from Norwegian side Viking in 2016, a knee injury picked up during pre season ahead of the start of last season saw him made just 13 appearances with just a goal to his name.

Strong, quick and blessed with tricks and flicks, he was a part of the Nigerian U20 team of 2015 but was dropped from the final list of players that represented Nigeria at the World Youth Championship in New Zealand.
