Houston Dynamo midfielder Rasheed Olabiyi is pleased with a 2-1 win over San Jose Earthquakes in an MLS game last weekend, describing it as a perfect birthday gift.
“The victory was a perfect birthday gift for me. I thank my team mates for making my birthday celebration a wonderful one with the victory,” former 3SC midfielder Olabiyi said.
On if there was any party organised by the club, Olabiyi said: “There was no party for the celebration because I didn’t inform them early enough, but I hanged out with my teams mate for dinner after the game to mark the birthday.”
Olabiyi clocked 25 on Saturday and was an 84th minute substitute for Alex. He was denied a goal by the goalkeeper four minutes after his introduction.
