Nigeria midfielder Sunny Obayan scored the equaliser for Real Salt Lake to go on and beat Seattle Sounders 2-1 in a Major League Soccer (MLS) clash.

Sunny scored with a header in the 43rd minute as Real Salt Lake went onto win 2-1.

He said the last time he scored a goal was in 2013 when he featured for Numancia in the Spanish second-tier league.

"I would say I'm really, really happy scoring important goals," he said.

The midfielder has settled down in the United States of America after just five weeks.

"It seems like he's happy to be here," RSL coach Jeff Cassar said. "He's got people that believe in him.”

The former Valencia ace will be further grounded by the time his family joins up with him at his new base.
