Olunga on target again as Swedish side held

The former Gor Mahia star seems to have maintained his form just few days after he ended his goal scoring duck for the club

Kenyan striker Michael Olunga helped his Swedish side IF Djurgardens to secure a 2-2 draw against Elfsborg in a top league match played on Saundy.

The former Gor Mahia striker seems to have maintained his form just few days after he ended his goal scoring duck for the club.

The away team was in the lead twice but Djurgarden managed to get back and organize a draw. It was also not far from the blue stripes in the final minutes but Michael Olunga’s ball ended up straight on the Elfsborg keeper Kevin Stuhr Ellegaard.

Djurgarden pressed high against Elfsborg back line, but never managed to establish any pressure on the opponent's court. Guests could take the lead after 26 minutes when Per Frick turned away their coverage and dotted the 0-1. The reply came quickly, fortunately, just as the Gothenburg later, when Mathias Ranégie brilliantly set up Olunga to calmly chip the ball in for 1-1 result.

The towering striker ended his 14 match goal drought after scoring a brace against IFK Gotenborg in a 3-1 victory last weekend. An elated Olunga maintains his latest display is due to God. “I thank God once again for such a wonderful win. I scored again and I promise to keep myself fit and continue to find the back of the net.”
