Paul Onuachu: Biography
Paul started his career back home in Nigeria. The gangling striker first began with Nigerian 3rd tier side FC Ebedei as a youth team player. His impressive performances with the Ogun state-based outfit earned him a move overseas, joining Danish top-flight club FC Midtjylland in 2012.
Onuachu spent about 7 seasons with the Danish Champions scoring 74 goals in 181 matches for The Wolves, winning 2 league titles and a cup. He also spent some time on loan at Danish side Vejle Boldklub. He featured 13 times for the Jutland based club, scoring 5 goals.

Paul’s first stint with the Nigerian national teams began in 2015 when he was called up to the Under-23s.

Paul would later score his first goal for the Super Eagles in his second match, a friendly game against Egypt. The goal, a spectacular volley in the first few seconds of the match, entered the record books as the fastest goal scored by a Nigerian player in an international game, proving ultimately to be the match-winner.
