Nigeria born starlet Tai Sodje was on song for Manchester City who annihilated Stoke City 5-0 in the English Premier League U18 on Tuesday night.
Another Nigerian Adedire Awokoya Mebude also scored for the home side who were simply ruthless.
A brace from Oscar Bobb handed City a 2-0 advantage.
Sodje scored the third goal with seven minutes left to play in the first stanza before Micah Hamilton added to the tally.
Five minutes before final whistle, Adedire Awokoya Mebude showed up with his team’s fifth goal.
The 17-year-old has been at City since 2015 and is a skillful centre forward who marries vision, craft, guile and potent finishing power to great effect.
A prolific goal-scorer, Sodje is also a versatile striker and can also operate to impressive effect on both the right or left flanks.
