Nigeria players abroad: Emmanuel Ogude nets second Danish Superliga goal of the season

Emmanuel Ogude was on the scoresheet in Vendsyssel FF’s 3-2 home loss to SønderjyskE in the Danish Superliga on Friday.

The 24-year-old Nigerian netted late on at the Nord Energi Arena to bring his league tally to two for the season.

Despite a brilliant start which saw Jens Askou’s men — who were desperate to leave the relegation zone — go into the break with a 1-0 advantage through 19-year-old Iceland international Jón Dagur Thorsteinsson, who curled home a freekick, Vendsyssel were condemned to their second consecutive home defeat.

Half-time lead would have been more, had Knudsem and Emmanuel Ogude been more clinical in front of goal.

The visitors came out of the tunnel recharged, scoring thrice in the space of 24 minutes — the first coming in the 47th minute — to take a 3-1 lead.

Christian Jakobsen fired in a loose ball to equalize. Alexander Bah’s close-range finish and Mart Lieder’ s delightful back-heel goal gave Claus Nørgaard’s side the lead.

With five minutes left, Ogude gave VFF hopes of a comeback when he found the back of the net. The visitors, though, held on to secure their first win in the last three games.
