The ball was ahead of Onuachu inside the box, but he somehow jumped and extended one of his long legs to connect in spectacular fashion beyond the Konyaspor goalkeeper in the 85th minute.
Trabzonspor coach Abdullah Avci simply described the acrobatic goal as “Goal of the Year”, while Onuachu’s Turkish club have already picked it for the Puskas Goal of the Year Award presented by FIFA.
“Oh my world, Paul onuachu really scored a goal worthy of the puskas award, this is the best goal in Europe so far this season,” gushed @annabellamarvy on X.
“Paul Onuachu might have just won the 2023 Puskas Award with this goal for Trabzonspor,” further celebrated @AFCTrae
Added @ChampionsTV: “Paul Onuachu just scored this Puskas worthy goal. Nigerian strikers are on fire.”
Southampton loanee Onuachu has now netted six goals and an assist in eight matches thus far this season.
