Michael Olunga grabbed a brace as Kashiwa Reysol came from a goal down to beat FC Tokyo 2-1 in the Japanese League Cup.
The Harambee Stars striker scored two quick goals within a span of three minutes in the Group B match played on Wednesday. The former Gor Mahiastriker produced a stellar second half display when he rallied Reysol to a major comeback after Tsuyoshi Watanabe had put Tokyo ahead in the 32nd minute.
The win saw Reysol move to second behind Vegalta Sendai, who beat Sagan Tosu 3-0. Olunga’s side was relegated to the second division where they occupy third place from two games.
Olunga earned a call up to the Harambee Stars squad set to face Ghana in the last match of the Afcon qualifier later in March.
