The young talent, who recently impressed in the UEFA Europa Conference League for Gent, continued his fine form, securing a crucial goal for the Belgian side.
During the first league game and his first start of the season, Orban found the back of the net in the 71st minute, sealing KAA Gent’s thrilling 3-2 home victory against KV Kortrijk.
Orban’s impact was undeniable as he notched the winning goal (assisted by Jordan Torunarigha) in Gent’s season opener.
The team was already leading 2-1 at halftime, and the Nigerian superstar’s strike further solidified their position, with KV Kortrijk pulling one back only minutes before stoppage time.
The forward wasted no time, taking just 71 minutes to open his account for the 2023/2024 season.
Gent’s performance was outstanding, as they triumphed 3-2 against their opponents at the Ghelamco Arena on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
At 21 years old, Orban, who joined Gent from Denmark last winter, is poised to make a significant impact in European competitions this season.
His impressive record of 15 goals in 16 appearances for Gent in the Jupiler league last season proves that his skills are no stroke of luck.

With such promising talent and impressive performances, Gift Orban is a name to watch out for in the football world this season.
