Adeyemi announces with a double-pack:

Additional transformations at the training ground paid off on new international Karim Adeyemi – and two days before the World Cup qualifiers run in perfect time.

“After the Seville match, I was on the field normally and today I succeeded,” said the 19-year-old RB Salzburg striker after the 2-1 win over OSC Lille. In a 1-1 draw on the first day of the Champions League, the U-21 champions awarded a penalty to the Austrians, and now scored two goals from the point.

“We are very happy, we scored three points at home against a very strong opponent. We, as a young group, wanted to show ourselves and not hide,” he said after hitting two penalties in the 35th and 53rd minutes. However, the striker cautioned against over-ecstasy. : “It’s unbelievable, a beautiful thing, but in principle we haven’t won anything yet.”


Salzburg coach Matthias Giseli confirmed after the match that Adeyemi was chosen as the first to take a penalty despite the incident in Seville, where he was nonetheless named “the best player in the game”. “He was rewarded today,” the coach said, expressing delight that Adeyemi set a record for former Bayern professional Arjen Robben with his fourth penalty kick – after three in Seville – in a top flight season. Salzburg’s next challenger is Wolfsburg at home on October 20.

Adeyemi’s last appearance in the first national team was a 6-0 victory over Armenia. National team coach Hansi Flick has nominated the squad for the matches against Romania and North Macedonia on Friday.
