On Tuesday, Pivovarna Union also won promotion to the Pivovarna Union Cup Fužinar, who beat Maripol Starše 4:2 away. In front of 90 spectators, Divine Igwe Ikenna, a 19-year-old striker from Nigeria, who is gaining more and more attention in a Fužinar jersey, contributed the lion’s share to the promotion of the Koroška second division team.
The African teenager scored three times and scored a hat-trick in 40 minutes. Fužinar was thus promoted despite already being in 33rd place. Gašper Gaberšek Rotovnik is sent off.
Ikenna Divine Igwe has scored 12 goals this season, his second in the country– three in the cup, five in the 2. SNL and four in the second youth league. The Nigerian has also been in Celje before, where he played only three games in the first half of this year in the first youth league and did not register among the scorers.
It should be added that the former member of the Nigerian club Campos Football Club was also helped to open its doors in Slovenia by legendary referee Damir Skomina, who also started working as an agent some time ago. Last November, he revealed that he would try to help as many talented Nigerians as possible to Europe, but for now Divine Igwe Ikenna is undoubtedly seizing the opportunity that Damir Skomina has given him.
