Farouq Ogundare stole the show for Beyond Limits in the game against Italian club Fiorentina.

Beyond Limits’ talented midfielder, Farouq Ogundare marked his first call-up to the Nigeria Flying Eagles in sensational style in Italy.

Pulse Sports Nigeria reports that Ogundare stole the show with a stunning hat-trick to inspire his club to a 6-4 win against Fiorentina in the Viareggio Cup.

With the Remo Stars academy already 3-1 up, the wonderkid uncorked a fizzling long-range drive from 30 yards to extend his club’s lead to 4-1 in the 39th minute.

Ogundare’s strike is a contender for goal for the tournament as he latched onto a headed clearance before unleashing an unstoppable rocket into the top corner.

He would two more goals in the 50th and 60th minutes to complete his hat-trick and give the No Limits boys a comfortable 6-1 lead.

Wheeling away in celebration with his teammates, the creative prodigy will have caught the eye of the Flying Eagles manager, Ladan Bosso ahead of the All African Games in Ghana.

That performance crowns what had been an incredible 24 hours for the youngsters after his maiden selection to represent his country was announced.

Ogundare’s unerring hattrick for Beyond Limits suggests his development is accelerating rapidly while also showing what he could offer Bosso’s team in Ghana.

Bosso will be eager to integrate the gifted left-footer into his plans after this exhibition of long-range shooting.

With a wand of a left boot, the footballing world will soon know Ogundare's name if he can translate club form to the international stage.
