Nigeria strikers Leke James and Sulaiman Abdullahi’s goals helped lift their Norwegian clubs last weekend. James was delighted to return to scoring goals, as his club Aalesund beat Mjondalen 4-2.
James has not scored since May 13 in a 2-2 draw at home to Sarpsborg. Flying Eagles ace Sulaiman Abdullahi scored his fifth goal for his Norwegian club Viking on Sunday as they lost 4-1 at Stromgodset.
Abdullahi put Viking ahead on the fourth minute and it ended being a consolation goal. James said: “It’s a good feeling for me to score a brace in this game to help us win a game that we were 2-0 down.
I am so happy because it has been a while I scored. I give God the glory,” James told AfricanFootball. com. The 22-year-old striker scored his first of the night in the 55th minute to take the game to 2-1 after they were two goals down.
