Straight from the lower league in Norway, Gift Orban has continued to take Belgium by storm after his super strike gave Gent all three points against Anderlecht in the league and renewed their hopes of reaching the championship playoffs.
The Super Falcons star netted a brace for Atletico Madrid to win 2-1 at Real Sociedad and take her tally for the season to six goals. The 23-year-old forward is now just four goals shy of her record last season. Her club are now fourth in the standings with 39 points from 20 matches.

It was a remarkable individual display by the striker as he came off the bench to score twice in a seven-goal thriller at Fatih Karagumruk in Turkey. This performance is the more remarkable as he has only returned from another injury layoff. Sivasspor will most certainly be happier by this comeback as his goals will ensure they stay clear of relegation from the Turkish Super Lig.
The former Arsenal ace has already cemented a super season by equaling a 33-year record this past weekend. He scored twice in a 5-0 spanking of Reading to hit the 21-league goal mark, a milestone that was last achieved by a Middlesbrough player in 1990. He remains the leading scorer in the English Championship and ‘Boro are now within striking distance of second-placed Sheffield United for one of the automatic spots for promotion back to the Premier League.
The talented winger has shown a lot more consistency with his goals and assists lately after he created both goals for Villarreal to beat home team UD Almeria 2-0 in La Liga. His team now have a realistic chance to play again in Europe come next season as they are just a place below the qualifying bracket in seventh spot. Hopefully, Chukwueze will show his good form for the Super Eagles in a 2023 AFCON double header against Guinea Bissau later this month.
The little known striker has really taken Belgium by storm with yet another well-taken match winner for Gent at home against Anderlecht. He first announced his arrival in Belgium when he fired a double on his debut against Westerlo. He has now scored four goals in six appearances in all competitions. Gent have now boosted their chances of qualifying for the championship playoffs. They have 45 points from 28 matches and further slips by champions Club Brugge in the remaining six rounds of matches in the regular season will get them into the Top Four.
