Ex-PSG Whiz Ogbeche Fires 10-Minute Hat-Trick For Indian Super League ClubPublished: October 18, 2018
Former Paris Saint-Germain and Nigeria wonderkid Bartholomew Ogbeche has already started firing on all cylinders following his move to Indian Super League club Northeast United FC.
The experienced attacker arrived at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Thursday with one goal to his name which he scored on his debut against FC Goa but took his tally to four goals in three matches after scoring a hat-trick against Chennaiyin.
The home team established a two-goal lead through goals from Rowllin Borges (OG) and Thoi Singh before Ogbeche reduced the deficit in the 29th minute.
Chennaiyin did not have to wait long before restoring their two-goal cushion with Singh getting his name on the score-sheet again in the 32nd minute but Northeast United's Nigerian star Ogbeche made it 3-2 in the 37th minute before beating the goalkeeper with a perfectly timed strike to net the equalizer on 39 minutes.
The win, Northeast United's second of the season, sees the team coached by Eelco Schattorie move to the top of the standings with seven points.
Ogbeche, who played for Nigeria at the 2002 World Cup, previously had spells with teams in France, England, Spain, Netherlands and Greece.
The 34-year-old is the captain of Northeast United and plays with the number ten kit.
