Ex-Super Eagles head coach Sunday Oliseh began the new Dutch second-tier campaign by leading his club Fortuna Sittard to a 5-1 home win over FC Dordrecht on Friday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Goals from Lisandro Semedo, Andre Vidigal, Stefan Askovski and a brace from Finn Stokkers sent the Sittard to the top of the Eerste Divisie Jupiler League, after the opening first round of matches despite Gustavo Hamer grabbing a consolatory goal for FC Dordrecht.
Semedo opened scoring in the 19th minute before Stokkers doubled the advantage six minutes later to hand Fortuna Sittard a 2-0 lead into the interval.
In the second half, Stokkers made it 3-0 before Hamer pulled one back for FC Dordrecht, but 10 minutes later it was 4-0 to the home team.
New signing Andre Vidigal made it 4-1 with a back heel goal in the 65th minute. Stefan Askovski sealed the win for Oliseh’s side in the 90th minute of the encounter.
