• Jerome Akor celebrates Sogndal match winner on Sunday

    Jerome Akor has dedicated his first goal for Sogndal to God while vowing to do more to ensure the Norwegian club return to the top league at the end of this season.

    Akor snatched a dramatic late winner on Sunday for Sogndal to win 2-1 at Asane and stay in the hunt for a prompt return to the top league.

    The Jamba Academy star, 18, came off the bench in the 89th minute to show great predatory instincts two minutes later when he dashed in to follow through a low cross home and give Sogndal maximum points away from home.

    “It was a great feeling to score such an important goal,” the Flying Eagles striker told journalists.

    “Despite the cold and pouring rain the adrenaline was pumping.

    “The whole team played very well and we deserved our victory.

    “I can’t but glorify God. Glory to God, He did it again for me.”

    Expressing his delight at the successes of his boys, Jamba Academy Chief Executive, Mr Jamba Zira maintained that Jerome has been a prolific catalyst in centre position on the field of play who has enormous talent to nudge in the top league.

    Score Nigeria reported that the big centre-forward was expected to write another piece of history with Sogndal 2 when they face Odd in the quarterfinal of the Youth Cup on Thursday.

     

    Akor, who has netted eight goals in as many matches with the second team, scored one of the goals for Sogndal 2 to reach the last-eight for the first time since 1997.
