Another Nigerian who was on song was Emmanuel Emegha who banged in Sparta's second goal.
Aged 17, Emegha, who has played a non-binding game for Netherlands U15s, scored 14 goals in 17 matches for Sparta Rotterdam's youth teams last season.
He signed his first professional contract with Sparta, a three-year deal, in March 2020.
