The German Bundesliga ended Saturday on a high with 34 goals scored across the nine games that were played simultaneously.
Nigerian striker Anthony Ujah got one of Saturday’s goals as he hit the back of the net in the 26th minute; setting the tone as his team Union Berlin whipped Fortuna Düsseldorf 3-0.
Ujah who had endured a long drought chose the last day of the league season to again showcase his goal-scoring prowess.
Having done his bit with what was his fourth goal of the campaign, Ujah in the 62nd minute was substituted and replaced with compatriot Suleiman Abdullahi.
Berlin’s drowning of Fortuna Düsseldorf effectively confirmed the losing side’s relegation to the second division.
Elsewhere, Super Eagles defender, Jamilu Collins, endured another humiliating day in Germany as his already-relegated Paderborn side were edged 3-2 by Eintracht Frankfurt.
With the three goals conceded on Saturday, Jamilu and his Paderborn teammates shipped in an astonishing 74 goals in 38 games.
