Sturm Graz started perfectly in the Europa League as they celebrated a deserved and hard-fought 1-0 home win against FC Midtjylland on Thursday.

After Emanuel Emegha’s early goal, the Styrians made things exciting for a long time and also missed from the penalty spot.

Midtjylland skipper Stefan Hierländer was sent off.

It was a relief to see Nigerian eligible Emegha get on the scoresheet for the Austrian giants.

In the parallel game, Lazio clearly had the upper hand 4-2 against Gernot Trauner’s Feyenoord Rotterdam.

Emegha’s mother is Nigerian, while his father is from Togo and he was born in Holland.

He has already been capped by his adopted country at youth level.
