Sierra Leone international midfielder, Gibrilla Julius Wobay, opened his NK Olimpija Ljubljana goal scoring account in Sunday’s 5-0 thumping of NK Rudar in the Slovenian PrvaLiga.

Wobay, who was making his fourth appearance for the Zmaji (The Dragons), doubled the lead in 49 minutes, after Rok Kronaveter 24 minutes strike had earlier given them the lead.

Kronaveter scored his second of the night to make it 3-0 before an own goal from Radović and Ricardo Alves’ effort sealed the win for the home side as they moved four points clear at the top of the log.
