Nigeria’s Osayi-Samuel scores QPR’s FA Cup win against Swansea City

Bright Osayi-Samuel put his name on the scoresheet as Queens Park Rangers breezed past Swansea City 5-1 in the third round of the FA Cup.

The 22-year-old did so in the 29th minute of play after Jordan Hugill gave the Superhoops the lead.

Hugill added his second on the stroke of half-time before Lee Wallace and Josh Scowen heaped more misery on the Swans.

George Byers scored the consolation goal for the South Wales side.

Osayi-Samuel lasted for 69 minutes and was replaced by 22-year-old Irish-Nigerian Olamide Sodipo.

Osayi-Samuel has now featured 20 times in all competitions for QPR this season, with his goal tally up to five alongside four assists.

His most recent goal action came last weekend in the Championship after Mark Warburton’s men thumped Cardiff City 6-1. Another Anglo-Nigerian in Eberechi Eze scored in that match.
