Kelechi Nwakali has praised his teammates for their displays in MVV Maastricht’s 3-1 thrashing of Jong FC Utrecht on Friday.

The Nigerian joined the Maastricht outfit on a second loan spell at the club from English Premier League side Arsenal during the January transfer window, after spending the first half of the season with VVV Venlo.

In his seventh appearance since his return to the club, the 19-year-old opened his goal account with a brace against Jean-Paul de Jong’s side.

The midfielder scored the curtain raiser in the 23rd minutes and added the second three minutes into the second half. Nick Venema’s effort was rendered a consolation as Attila Yildirim sealed the victory.

Inspired by the showing, the youngster then took to the social media to revel in the victory.

“Thanks to God for two goals and the three points, good job boys,” Nwakali posted on Instagram.

The result saw them climb to the 12th spot in the log, three places adrift promotion play-off slots after gathering 38 points from 28 outings.
