Nigerian international Anthony Ujah was in action for 72 minutes as Union Berlin earned a 2-0 victory over Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
The first half of the match watched by over 22 thousand spectators at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei in Berlin ended in a barren draw.
But it was in the second 45 minutes that hosts Union Berlin came out smoking grabbing the first goal in the 47th minute thanks to Serbian Neven Subotić who nonetheless bagged a yellow twenty one minutes later.
Home boy Keven Schlotterbeck finally increased the tally in the 61st minute thus pushing the match beyond the reach of the visitors.
Interestingly Augsburg had on their players’ list Nigerian born Noah-Joel Sarenren-Bazee who was an unused substitute. Saturday’s result was a pleasant one for Berlin who were hammered 3-1 by RB Leipzig in their last Bundesliga away tie.
The club prior to the clash against Augsburg played four club friendlies winning two, losing one and pulling a draw against Union Saint a contrast from back to back defeat for Augsburg who lost 3-5 to Borrusia Dortmund going into Saturday’s match.
Ujah was not the only one that sang victory song as compatriot Jamilu Collins equally enjoyed a 2-0 victory with Paderborn over Freiburg. Unfortunately his party was tarnished with a sending off after earning double yellow cards in the 29th and 59th minute respectively.
