Michael Olunga open La Liga goal account with a hat-trick

President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga have joined Kenyans in congratulating Kenyan worldwide forward Michael "Engineer" Olunga after his goals made him the first Kenyan and first Girona player to score a hat trick in La Liga.

Olunga also became the first Kenyan to have scored in La Liga and the first Girona player to score a hat-trick in the top tier competition.

The goals were Olunga's first in his Spanish La Liga account.

Lindsey Vonn qualifies for US Olympic team
Vonn had been sidelined with a back injury, which was diagnosed when she pulled out of a race after her victory at Val d'Isere. Vonn didn't match Brignone's skiing, who found the right line to master some tricky turns in the course.

The Harambee Stars forward netted the goals in a span of 22 minutes to help the newly promoted side to ninth position on the league table with 26 points.

Used sparingly ever since, Olunga, on his fifth appearance, made history by coming on halfway into Saturday's encounter - with his side a goal up courtesy Christian Stuani whom he replaced - to score in the 57th, 70th and the 79th minutes.

He completed his remarkable hat-trick nine minutes later when he was in the right place at the right time to get to the rebound inside the box and gleefully rifle the ball low inside the left post and seal the win.

Sung as a duet with British soul musician Michael Kiwanuka , it's a winding rock track, chock full of romance and melodrama. They'll keep it going when they headline hometown festival Governors Ball in June.

Olunga's total tally for Girona now is five goals having scored a brace on his debut in a friendly against Ripoll in September 2017.

The team went out and during the first 10 minutes it enjoyed good approaches, with Mojica especially active.
