Olatunbosun's goal goes viral

A few weeks ago, most football fans around the world wouldn't have heard of the name Sikiru Olatunbosun but that has all changed following his spectacular goals against Rangers International of Enugu last weekend.
The goal itself was a combination of sheer brilliance, improvisation and ingenuity all rolled into one.
It was a matchday 10 game at the Agege Stadium in Lagos, Nigeria between the home side Mountain of Fire and Miracles (MFM) and reigning Nigerian champions Rangers International of Enugu.
MFM made incursions into the Rangers area but their efforts failed to yield any fruit as Rangers held firm, but the deadlock would later be broken in spectacular fashion by Olatunbosun’s wonderful volley.
The build up that lead to the goal was like something out of a football video game.
Rangers midfielder Chinedu Udeagha lost the ball in the midfield to MFM left-back Julius Emiloju, who prodded the ball forward to the diminutive midfield maestro Chukwuka Onuwa.
Onuwa found space to lob the ball to Stephen Odey, who on noticing three Rangers defenders closing in on him, flicked the ball with the inside of his left boot to Olatunbosun.
The striker's sixth sense with into gear.

Video: JS Saoura vs Enugu Rangers (1-1)

So you must have heard by now (except you live under a rock that Enugu Rangers held Algerian side JS Saoura to a 1-1 draw in the preliminary round of the CAF Champions League.

Good game by Rangers but the real work is next week when the second leg takes place in Enugu. I hope coach Imama and the boys can do us proud.

By the way, if they scale this hurdle they will have Egyptian side Zamalek to deal with.

Here are the highlights
