'Onuachu Got Tired' - Midtjylland Boss Frustrated As New African Hero Fails To Score After Eagles Duty
FC Midtjylland's head coach, Kenneth Andersen was left frustrated after the Danish champions were held to a goalless draw by FC Nordsjaelland in the Superliga on Saturday.

Paul Onuachu was involved in international duty with the Super Eagles five days ago and Andersen has blamed fatigue for the striker's inability to convert his chances.

The 2.01 meters tall center forward fired on all cylinders in the 1-0 win vs Egypt and etched his name into the African football history books by scoring the fastest international goal in a game involving two African nations.

''The result annoys me when I think about the great chances we created,'' Andersen was quoted as saying by bold.dk.

''Onuachu got tired, and George didn't have much to shoot with either, because he played at three o'clock at night on the other side of the globe.

'It's not an excuse, but if all players are there all the time, you have a better rhythm than if they travel around the world and play in the middle of the night.''

Onuachu has yet to score for FC Midtjylland in his last four appearances in the Danish Superliga.
