All eyes on hat-trick hero Chima for Europa League tie

Daniel Chima Chukwu has said his weekend hat-trick for Molde in Norway will inspire him in a Europa League tie versus Stuttgart on Thursday.

Molde are bottom of Group E of the Europa League after they lost their first game 2-1 at Danish club Kobenhavn.

On Sunday, Nigerian striker Chima fired a treble against Stabaek in a 4-3 victory to shoot Norwegian champions Molde back to the top of the table.

“This performance against Stabaek has put me in a right frame of mind ahead of our Europa League match with Stuttgart," former Lyn Oslo star Chima has revealed.

"It was a great feeling for me to score three goals in a match, that was my first since I came to Norway. And most importantly is that we won and the victory keeps us on top of the league.”

His compatriot Emmanuel Ekpo was a 73rd minute substitute for Molde against Stabaek.
