Midtjylland Hat-Trick Hero, Onuachu Upbeat About Europa League Qualification

 

By Johnny Edward:

Nigerian striker, Paul Onuachu, is confident Midtjylland can see off Hungarian side Ferencvaros in the next round of the UEFA Europa League qualification clash, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.‎

The 23 year old scored an hat-trick for his Danish side Midtjylland who outclassed Northern Ireland side, Derry City, in last night's encounter 6-1 to advance to the next round of the competition with a 10-2 aggregate win.

Ferencvaros also beat FK Jelgava 3-0 on aggregate to qualify for the next round of the competition.

Onuachu gave his side the lead in the seventh minute firing home from close range.

He bagged his second on 38 minutes latching on to Yussuf Poulsen's corner which wasn't properly cleared to safety by the Derry defence.

In the 69th minute, Onuachu completed his hat-trick side-footing home Gustav Wikheim's clever flick from close range.

"It was a great game and I believe we have what it takes to get past our opponents in the next round," Onuachu told Completesportsnigeria.com.

"Our target is to get to the group stages of the competition which is possible."

Onuachu scored 23 goals and made four assists in 45 games for Midtjylland last season.
