Watch: 2023 Super Eagles invitee Gift Orban sent off for the first time in his pro careerPublished: September 24, 2023
Gift Orban received the first red card of his professional career as KAA Gent came from behind to secure a 2-1 win over KAS Eupen in a Belgian Pro League match at the Ghelamco Arena on Sunday evening.
The 2023 Super Eagles invitee could face more disciplinary action given that he received a straight red card for an offense deemed to be violent conduct.
In the 45th minute, Orban was dismissed for shoving Rune Paeshuyse in the neck, causing the KAS Eupen defender to collapse on the turf in pain, and the referee confirmed the red card after a review by the VAR.
Orban gestured to the home fans as he made his way off the pitch and seemed to take the blame for the red card.
The 21-year-old has had an exemplary disciplinary record since landing in Europe until his moment of madness today.
Prior to the visit of Eupen, he had never been sent off in 56 matches combined for both Stabæk and Gent
Despite playing with ten men, Gent fought hard to secure three points thanks to second half goals from Sven Kums and Tarik Tissoudali.
