Belgium: Four-star Orban relishes superb display for Gent
Gift Orban is full of excitement after scoring four times in KAA Gent’s 7-2 win against Zulte Waregem on Sunday night.
After failing to register a goal in the first half, Orban netted four times in the second half.
That made him the first Gent player to score four times in a Belgian Pro League game this century.
The 20-year-old was on target in the 53rd, 68th, 75th, and 83rd minutes, respectively.
“For me, it is the first time that I am taking the match ball home,” he said after the game
“As a professional, I never scored a hat trick; now it’s the first time. And then immediately four, that’s very nice. ”
Orban has now scored nine goals in his last eight games for Gent.
He only moved to Gent from the Norwegian second-division club Staebek in January.
