Kenyan International Michael Olunga continued with his red hot foam and bagged his 23rd goal of the season in the Japanese J1 League.

The prolific striker scored with 10 minutes left, but couldn’t prevent his side Kashiwa Reysol from defeat as they went down 2-1 away to third-placed Gamba Osaka.

Reysol had gone behind seven minutes into the second half after Kim Syeung-gyu scored in his own net and were looking in danger of losing a second consecutive match.

 

However, while in trouble, Reysol rang Olunga and he promptly answered the call, scoring in the 80th minute to seemingly secure a point for the visitors. The Kenyan forward raced on to a pass from Ataru Esaka before firing low past the keeper.

But, they could not hold on for long as the hosts bagged the winner at the death, Ademilson scoring with one minute of regular time left to play.
