Olunga strikes seven times in match to win golden boot in Japan


Kenya international Michael Olunga of Kashiwa Reysol score seven goals in their final game of the Japan second division match.

This seven goals saw Olunga completes the league season as the top marksman with 27 goals.

This is the highest number of goals the 25-year-old has scored in a game, and also the most goal he has managed in a single season.

The Harambee Stars forward was on fire in what could be his last competitive game for the club, leading Reysol to a 13-1 thumping over Kyoto Sanga.

Reysol has already won the J2 League trophy and earned promotion to the top-flight last week, but still, Olunga and his teammates looked keen to sign off in style.

The feat comes two weeks after Olunga also scored for Kenya to earn that credible one-all draw away to Egypt in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Alexandria.

Olunga, has in the past turned out for Kenya’s Gor Mahia and Spanish side Girona, joined Reysol from China club Guizhou Zhicheng.

It has been reported that Germany Bundesliga side Wolfsburg are keen on signing him.
