On loan Olympiakos of Greece forward Michael Olaitan, scored twice to help his loan side Ergotelis draw 3-3 with OFI Crete, in a friendly game meant to keep both teams in top action following the suspension of the country’s league by the government.
The government in Greece decided to suspend the league indefinitely following crowd troubles in the derby between Olympiakos and Panathinaikos, last weekend and teams in Greece are now forced to organize friendly games to keep their players match fit, pending when the suspension will be lifted.
Ergotelis who are currently battling relegation from the Greek top flight with trailing rivals Crete, two nil before the half time break but, Olaitan inspired a comeback for his team scoring the first goal via the spot, before his shot was turned in by Crete defender for an own goal.
Crete regained the lead via the spot to take scores to 3-2 but Olaitan scored his second and his team third of the game to end the first half tied at 3-3.
The second half saw a raft of changes which took the shine out of the game and Olaitan was among those substituted as he made way in the 46th minute.
The 22 year old Nigerian who recovered from a career threatening slump on the pitch a year ago, joined Ergotelis on loan from Olympiakos and has so far contributed one goal to the team in their battle to avoid relegation from the three games he has played so far.
