Striker Gift Emmanuel Orban was impressive for Belgian club KAA Gent after he salvaged a 1-1 home draw with Istanbul Basaksehir in the UEFA Conference League on Thursday night.

The tie remains finely balanced after a rain-soaked first leg in Belgium. Both goals were scored before half-time, Stefano Okaka putting the visitors in front with a brilliant glancing header from Serdar Gürler’s cross. Gent equalised thanks to Gift Orban, who bundled the ball in when Volkan Babacan failed to deal with Hugo Cuypers’ initial effort.

Orban has now netted five goals in seven matches since his shock transfer in January from the Norwegian lower league for three Million Euros.

Gift Emmanuel Orban is one of the players tipped to play for Super Eagles in future.
