Nigeria U-20 international midfielder Kelechi Nwakali bagged a brace in MVV Maastricht’s 3-1 victory over Jong FC Utrecht.
The Arsenal loanee fired in the game’s opener in the 23rd minute before he increased the host’s lead on 48 minutes.
Attila Yildirim got Maastricht’s third goal on 89 minutes after Nick Venema had pulled one back for the visitors in the 69th minute.
Nwakali joined Maastricht on loan in the January transfer window after a frustrating loan spell at Eredivisie side VVV Venlo in the first-half of the season.
The 19-year-old has now scored 4 goals (two for former club Venlo) in 21 appearances altogether this season.
Maastricht are 12th on 38 points in the Eerste Divisie log.
