Nigerian striker breaks goal drought in stylish fashion
Bright Edomwonyi, scored a hattrick for Austrian club, Sturm Graz, in the 15-1 win over Kraftwerk U30 in an international friendly on Saturday.
The forward netted in the 49th, 79th and 88th minute as the three-time Austrian champions won in comprehensive fashion. Edomwonyi has yet to score in the Austrian Bundesliga despite making six appearances for the side this season.

He scored twice in 11 league appearances for FC Liefering the following season before Wacker Innsbruck in the second part of 2014.
Edomwonyi however enjoyed his most productive season yet in the 2014-15 campaign at Austrian club, TSV Hartberg where he scored nine goals in 15 league matches.
Born in Benin City, Edomwonyi has never been capped by Nigeria at any level.
