Europa League: Super Eagles Star Scores in 7-Goal Thriller

By Olamide Oyetunji - Super Eagles midfielder Joseph Ayodele Aribo was on the scorers sheet for Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers.

Rangers showed incredible character to claim a 4-3 Europa League win away to Royal Antwerp to hold the advantage of next week’s second leg at Ibrox.

After going a goal up through Joe Aribo, Gers found themselves 2-1 down at the break before levelling through a Borna Barisic penalty.

The home side hit the front again before Ryan Kent equalised again, and then a second Barisic penalty in the final minute of normal time secured another impressive away result for the Light Blues.

The Super Eagles star opened the floodgates in the 38th when goalkeeper Beiranvand came out to try and block but spilled the ball out to Morelos on the edge of the area. 

Beiranvand tried to recover, but Morelos managed to get it wide to the incoming Joe Aribo to fire into the empty net from 25-yards.

His compatriot Leon Balogun was a first half substitute for Rangers Right back James Tavernier who got injured in the 24th minute.

Joe Aribo has scored six goals this term with Steven Gerrard and Rangers having only one defeat in their last 40 matches across all competitions, with 33 of these ending in victories (D6).
