On-loan Super Eagles forward Henry Onyekuru at the weekend was named in the Belgian Jupiler League team of the week for his performance for Anderlecht.

The young forward who is on a season long loan from Everton was an unused substitute on matchday one but made a return to the team on Sunday.

His blistering pace and darting runs helped Anderlecht to a 1-0 victory over Oostende in a keenly contested encounter.

Onyekuru was substituted late on amidst a standing ovation by the home crowd after 85 minutes.

The former KAS Eupen striker netted over 20 goals last season and expectation is high on him to replicate last season’s performance.
