Ex-Arsenal Striker Okenabirhie Celebrates Reaching 50 Career Goals With Brace For Doncaster Rovers
Former Arsenal schoolboy Fejiri Okenabirhie bagged a brace to help Doncaster Rovers register a 2-1 win at Swindon Town in a League One clash on Saturday afternoon.
 
The one-time Nigerian Federation target opened the scoring inside four minutes, breaking the the offside trap and putting himself one-on-one with goalkeeper Mark Travers, then slotted home.

In the first minute of first half stoppage time, the number 9 doubled the advantage with a header after he was set up by
Andy Butler.

In doing so, Okenabirhie took his career goals to fifty since turning professional with eleven in the colours of Doncaster Rovers and the others came during his spells with Shrewsbury Town and Dagenham & Redbridge FC.

The 24-year-old took to social media to celebrate reaching 50 goals, posting on Twitter : "Great team effort today. Blessed to reach 50 professional goals, all by God’s grace".

Okenabirhie netted four goals in five appearances for England C national team, including a hat-trick against Wales, but he's no longer eligible to represent that squad following his switch to the Football League in 2018.
