Odey Hits Target in First Zurich Match

Former MFM FC of Lagos forward, Stephen Odey marked his first official game for his new team FC Zurich with a goal and two assists to power them to a 5-2 win over BSC Old Boys in the Swiss U21 League.

Odey was handed a start in the game which is a third tier league clash and he didn’t disappoint as he set up their first and third goal before netting the fourth goal of the game to hand his team a handsome 5-2 win.

The victory helped the U21s to maintain their 5th place in the U21 league, but Odey will be focused on his debut for the first team which could come anytime soon, if he maintains his form for the U21s.

19 year old was second top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League last season with 17 goals, and he made his senior international bow for Nigeria against Togo in a friendly game in France.

He also starred for the B team in the CHAN Qualifiers, playing in both legs of their 2-1 aggregate win over Benin Republic which sealed their progress to the Championship holding in Morocco next year.
