Anthony Ujah scores in Cologne away win

The Nigerian got his side’s third goal in their away win in the German topflight game played at the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Saturday

Anthony Ujah was on target for FC Cologne in their 4-3 away win against TSG Hoffenheim in the German Bundesliga on Saturday evening.

His 35 minute strike courtesy of an assist from Pawel Olkowski ensured his team triumphed in the seven goal thriller at the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
Adam Szalai gave the hosts the lead after just two minutes, but Pawel Olowski scored his first goal for Cologne to level soon after.

Matthias Lehmann then put Cologne in front before Anthony Ujah doubled their advantage.

Two goals before half-time from Roberto Firmino brought Hoffenheim back on terms, but it was Olkowski who clinched victory for Cologne less than 10 minutes from time.

It looked like business as usual for Hoffenheim when they took the lead in the second minute, Szalai sweeping a low, right-footed shot inside the near post of Timo Horn.

Their lead did not last long, though, with Olkowski bringing Cologne level with his first goal of the season from just outside the penalty area into the bottom left-hand corner.

Ujah profited from a mistake from the hosts to add a third for Cologne with three Hoffenheim defenders just standing and watching as he took the ball past Baumann before slotting it into the unguarded goal.

It was time for Hoffenheim to respond with the kind of football which had made them one of the league's top goalscorers this season and Firmino brought them back into the game after exchanging passes with Tarik Elyounoussi and supplying the finish.

Ujah now boast of seven goals in the German topflight this season and with this win, Cologne are ranked 10th on the Bundesliga log with 15 points from 11 games.
