Nigeria striker, Lawal Olamilekan, Tuesday opened his goal-scoring account for Olympic Sporting Club in the Egyptian FA Cup match following his side’s 3-2 win over MSR Elslom.
Incidentally, the FA Cup match was Olamilekan’s third game for El-Olympi since he was snapped up a fortnight ago from Imo State-based Brighter Tomorrow Football Club under the auspices of forward-looking manager Emeka Darlington.
He made his debut in a 2-2 draw against Mansura in a league tie and was also featured in his side’s 3-1 away win against El Hamam.
Yesterday, the 19-year-old scored his side’s first goal of the encounter and assisted Mustafa Koshra for the second while Mohammed Al –Adesi scored the third goal through penalty.
“Of course, Olamilekan had a very good game, and scoring his first goal for El-Olympi would boost his confidence,” Darlington declared. “It was his third game for the El-Olympi and scoring today is a big plus for him.”
Incidentally, the second division team is coached by former Egyptian international and erstwhile Zamalek striker, coach Ahmed El Kass where Darlington believed Olamilekan would blossomed.
“Olamilekan is definitely in good hands with Coach Ahmed El Kass at Olympic Club,” Darlington noted. “Coach El Kass was a great striker in his days with Zamalek and I’m confident, Olamilekan will learn so much from him.”
