Nigerian striker Fanendo Adi has made record with his Major League Soccer (MLS) club, The Portland Timbers following his goal in their 2-1 defeat of CD Dragon of El Salvador in the CONCACAF Champions League.
The 25-year old scored one of the goals in the win over the El Salvadorian side to become the first-ever player to score competitive goals in five different countries having done so in Canada, USA, Costa Rica, Guyana and El Salvador.
Adi finished last season as the top scorer for the Timbers last season as they won the league title, and has already scored 17 goals this year, and is one goal short of being the club’s all-time leading-scorer in a single season.
He has also scored four goals in the CONCACAF Champions League since 2014.
He got his first call-up to the Super Eagles in March, ahead of their back-to-back Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Egypt, but never featured in any of the games which saw Nigeria fail to qualify for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
He is a much-travelled player who has played in Slovakia, Ukraine, Denmark and now the USA.
