Turkish Cup: Olarenwaju Kayode scores winning goal

Nigerian striker Olarenwaju Kayode was the hero for Sivasspor on Thursday as he scored the only goal that ensured their passage into the Round of 16 phase of the Turkish Cup.

Sivasspor were pushed to the limit before they could get the 1-0 win over Giresunspor and it was Kayode that popped up with the winning goal in stoppage time.

With Thursday’s goal which is his 5th of the season, the Super Eagles striker has now scored in every competition he has played in bar his domestic league.

Three seasons ago, Kayode finished as top scorer in the Austrian Bundesliga with Austria Wien and with the way he has been in top form since joining Sivasspor, he could be challenging for similar honours in Turkey.

Meanwhile in another Turkish Cup game also played on Thursday, Nigeria’s Okechukwu Azubuike was on the bench as his team Istanbul Basaksehir romped to an amazing 7-0 win over Turgutluspor.
