Onyekuru bags late winner for Anderlecht


Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru announced his return from the international break with the Super Eagles, by bagging a late goal for Belgian top club Anderlect in their 2-1 win away to Royal Excel Mouscron in the Belgian first division league.

Anderlecht took the lead through Bruno in the 42nd minute before they were pegged back by Govea’s equalizer seven minutes into the second half.

Onyekuru who is on loan to Anderlect from English premier League side Everton, then ensured the visitors will travel back with all three points in the bag when he converted in the 80th minute to win the closely contested
encounter 2-1 against Mouscron, who featured another Nigerian striker Taiwo
Awoniyi on loan from another Merseyside club Liverpool.

Onyekuru was then subbed off with three minutes left to play.

Henry Onyekuru 20′, by virtue of his goal, ended a 6 games barren run across all competitions for Anderlect since scoring twice on the 13th of October against Mechelen in a 4-3 win for Anderlecht, coincidentally away from home again.

Onyekuru has now scored 7 goals so far this season for Anderlect who lie 3rd on the league table with 28 points after 15 matches.

Up next for Onyekuru will be a massive clash against German champions Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, before they host Kortrijk Fc in the Belgian Cup next week Sunday.
