The international break is over and Anatole Abang is back to work in Denmark with Hobro IK, the second-tier club he is on loan to until next summer.

The New York Red Bulls' exiled forward was on the bench for top-of-the-table Hobro's home game against struggling Naestved. He watched his team go in at half-time trailing, 1-0.

But Hobro got back into the game in the second half. Nicholas Gotfredson scored twice to put the home team up 2-1 by the 63rd minute. Abang made it into the game in the 73rd minute.

The club's official match report praised Abang's "excellent technique" to release strike partner Wilfried Domoraud for Hobro's third goal, in the 81st minute. And the Cameroon international added the team's fourth himself in injury time.

The big win keeps Hobro top of the First Division table. The club is next in action on October 20, at home again, this time against Frederica.

The players celebrated the victory and Domoraud's performance with a rendition of "Wilfried's on fire". Abang seems to be enjoying his time in Denmark.
