Super Eagles new man, Gift Orban, ended his goal drought on Thursday night after scoring for the first time in his last 10 games during a KAA Gent UEFA Europa Conference League game against Breidablik.
Gift Orban finally found the net for the first time since August, while his compatriot, Jordan Torunarigha, also put in a good shift as KAA Gent cruised to a big Europa League win.
The Nigerian international rounded the scoring in their 5-0 home win against Breidablik during their matchday 3 at the Ghelamco Arena.
Omri Gandelman opened the scoring for KAA Gent with a powerful header from the centre of the box to the top right corner just 10 minutes into the game.
Shortly after, Hugo Cuypers added to Gent’s lead with another header in the 15th minute. Cuypers scored again in the 19th minute, this time after a well-executed combination with Tarik Tissoudali.
Tissoudali himself found the back of the net in the 43rd minute. Finally, Gift Orban completed the rout for Gent by scoring in the 69th minute, securing a convincing victory for the team.
Orban comes on as a substitute for Jordan Torunarigha in the 57th minute and scores the game’s winning goal.
The visitors had the opportunity to give their fans something to cheer for after being awarded a penalty, but Höskuldur Gunnlaugsson missed from the spot to compound their misery of the night.
The victory moves KAA Gent three points clear at the top of Group B with seven points from three matches, while their visitors remain deeply rooted at the bottom with no points at all.
Gift Orban and his teammates will now focus their attention on the Belgian Pro League game against Standard at the Ghelamco Arena.
