The 22-year-old was on target for the Troll Children but it counted for nothing as they lost at home to the Austrian Bundesliga side

Nigeria’s Samuel Adegbenro was on target in Rosenborg’s 5-2 defeat at home to Salzburg in Thursday’s Europa League clash.

The Norwegian side came into the encounter with the ambition of getting their first win of the competition; however, they ended the tie with basket full of goals.

Takumi Minamino’s hat-trick and Fredrik Gulbrandsen effort handed the Austrians a 4-0 lead going into the halftime break.

In the 52nd minute, Rosenborg reduced the deficit through the 22-year-old Nigerian who converted from Nicklas Bendtner’s assist.

Things got worse for Rini Coolen’s men after Even Hovland turned the ball into his net to help Salzburg maintain their four-goal lead.

Bendtner assisted Mike Jensen for the Troll Children’s second of the night but that was fruitless as they ended the game on a losing note.

Adegbenro’s Rosenborg remain at the base of Group B with zero point and (-9) goals difference. The host third-place Celtic in their next outing on November 29.
