Nigerian Exports : Crotone's Simy Nets First Hat-trick; Bournemouth Loanee Ofoborh Scores And More's round-up of the Nigerian players on target for their respective clubs in league matches across Europe on Friday, July 3.

Wycombe Wanderers are well placed to reach the League One playoff final after a comfortable 4-1 win over Fleetwood Town at Highbury Stadium.

Bournemouth loanee and Nigeria U20 international Nnamdi Ofoborh gave the Chairboys a dream start when his left-footed strike from the edge of the box beat goalkeeper Cairns after one minute.

The 20-year-old lasted 87 minutes on the pitch while Adebayo Akinfenwa played the last three minutes when he came off the bench to replace Fred Onyedinma.

In the Italian Serie B, Super Eagles striker Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo netted his first career hat-trick in Europe to help Crotone register a 3-0 win against already promoted Benevento.

Simy struck in the 14th, 18th and 71st minute to take his tally for the season to 17 goals from 32 games in all competitions.

In a seven-goal thriller at the øster Hus Arena (Sandnes), Peter Godly Michael's first-half brace was in vain as his team Oeygarden FK lost 4-3 vs Sandnes Ulf on the opening day of the Norwegian First Division.

Michael opened the scoring with a 12th minute goal, then put his side 2-1 up at minute 34 after his earlier effort was cancelled.

Teenage striker Tolu Arokodare continues to catch the eye in the Latvian Virsliga. The 19-year-old netted a crucial equaliser for Valmiera FK in the 79th minute of their 2-2 draw with Spartaks Jūrmala.

Arokodare has found the net in each of his last three games for Valmiera FK.

Another teenager in Emmanuel David also took his tally to three goals for the season after his 92nd minute strike helped Kauno Zalgiris secure a 2-0 win against Panevezys.

The 18-year-old, who joined Kauno Zalgiris in February, came off the bench in the 61st minute.
