Europa Conference League qualifier: Super Eagles star celebrates new baby arrival with brace




Super Eagles striker Peter Olayinka celebrated the birth of his son with a brace as Slavia Prague mauled St Josephs FC Gibraltar 7-0 in Thursday’s Europa Conference League 2nd qualifying round, 2nd leg home game at the Fortuna Arena.

It was Slavia Prague biggest win in European competitions as they stormed to an 11-0 aggregate victory to book a date with Greek’s Panathinaikos in the 3rd qualifying round.

The new dad opened scoring for the Red-Whites in the 18th minute after he out jumped St joseph’s defence and headed Jurečka’s cross into the net and celebrated in excitement with ‘rocking a baby’ mood.

Only two minutes later it was Vclav Jurečka himself who doubled the lead when he fired the ball through Fitzimons following Schranz’s pass.

Slavia added another goal in the 28 minutes with Olayinka scoring his brace and third for the Prague side heading the ball behind St Joseph’s goalkeeper on the near post to make it 3-0.

The Nigerian was later substituted in the 66th minute with Schranz.

Olayinka and his Nollywood actress, Yetunde Barnabas, popularly known as “Miss Pepeiye” in the popular TV series, Papa Ajasco, welcomed their first child in Prague, Czech Republic.

The now proud parents got married at an elaborate ceremony in Lagos in March 2021.
