Nigerian youngster scores winning goal in Italy

Orji Okonkwo -Bologna

Nigeria youth international striker Orji Okonkwo has opened his goalscoring account in the Italian Serie A.

Okonkwo was the hero for Bologna on Sunday as he helped them to a 1-0 win over ten man Sassuolo ‎in a keenly contested Serie A game 

Okonkwo was brought in by coach Roberoto Donadoni four minutes before full-time and the 19-year-old seized the moment; netting the winner for his team on the stroke of full-time.

Quite ecstatic, Okonkwo earned a ‎yellow card for his wide celebrations, but the forward will no doubt still cherish the moment as the goal was his first professional goal and his first goal in the Serie A for Bologna.
