West Ham set to face Gent’s rising star striker Gift Orban in the Europa Conference League quarter-finals on Thursday. The Nigerian international, who joined Gent in January from Stabaek, has quickly gained attention from Europe’s top clubs after scoring nine goals in just eight Belgian League matches and five goals in four Europa League appearances. Orban started as an unknown, playing in the Norwegian Second Division for Stabaek as recently as October. However, his first steps among Europe’s elite have been prolific, scoring a hat-trick against Basaksehir in the Europa League to fire Gent into the last eight. Orban’s unique journey from Nigeria to the top-flight of Norwegian football and then to Belgium is a testament to his winning mentality and exceptional striking abilities. With his sights set on playing in the Premier League or Bundesliga, the Hammers face a tough challenge against Orban, who is bound to deliver an exceptional performance on Thursday.
