The Nigerian striker was in superb form in front of goal for Lena Tyriberget's side as they silenced their hosts on Wednesday

Rasheedat Ajibade scored a brace in Avaldsnes’ 5-0 victory over Amazon Grimstad in Wednesday's Norwegian Women's Cup outing.

The Nigerian striker has continued to impress in front of goal after she scored the only goal for Avaldsness as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Lyn in a Toppserien game in their last outing.

The 20-year-old scored twice in the second half as Lena Tyriberget’s ladies condemned their hosts to a big defeat in front of their fans in Grimstad.

In the one-sided contest at J.J. Ugland Stadium, the visitors were held by the hosts until they broke the deadlock through Olaug Tvedten's effort three minutes from half-time.

Following the win, they will continue their Norwegian Toppersein title pursuit against Lillestrom in their next outing on October 16.
