Super Eagles forward, Paul Onuachu, continues to make a significant impact as he played a pivotal role in Trabzonspor’s victory over Pendikspor at home, Soccernet.ng reports.
The Nigerian star is adapting swiftly to life in Turkey, displaying his goal-scoring prowess by finding the net for the third time in as many appearances against the visiting team.
