Kenyan footballer Michael Olunga is already making his mark in Swedish football since joining Swedish club IF Djurgarden for trials early this year.
The former Gor Mahia striker netted a stunning goal for the club over the weekend. It was his second goal for the club and the team’s second in the 2 -0 victory over Norwegian side Aalesund in a friendly encounter played on Saturday 13 February in the city of Stockholm.
He had scored his first goal for the Djurgarden IF, who went ahead to secure a 2-2 draw against Seaua Bucuresti on Friday 12.
Olunga, coming on from the bench in the 53rd minute, dispatched a long range shot into the net using his left foot, igniting cheers from the crowd.

The striker is also making news for a video message posted on YouTube requesting Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger to sign him.
In the short clip, Olunga says, “Hi Arsene Wenger, I’m Michael Olunga Ogada, a striker at Gor Mahia FC which is in Kenya. I’m currently the best player in Kenya, I’ve scored 38 goals all season and my dream is to play for Arsenal.
“I’m talented and 21 years of age and ready to play for Arsenal if natured,’ he continued.
But I hope you’ll consider my request to come there (Emirates) and maybe join feeder team (nursery club) if not the senior team and in the next coming years, I’ll be sure to repay you for having faith in me. Thanks for considering my options.”
