Everton loanee Henry Onyekuru was the star of the night as he netted the winner for his Belgian side Anderlecht against Taiwo Awoniyis Royal Excel Mouscron in the Belgian top flight division on Saturday
With scores tied at 1-1 and the game looking more and more like a draw the 21 year old Belgian league top scorer from last season popped up with 10 minutes to go and won the match for his side
On a lawn made slippery by continual rain, both teams found it the game going very tough.
After ten minutes Bolingi took advantage of a mistake from our defense, but happily missed the 1 – 2 shot. It was necessary to wait until the half hour to attend a first frank opportunity in the Anderlecht camp.
Henry Onyekuru was dangerous from the get go forcing the Mouscron keeper into a save early on before Massimo Bruno opened scoring for Anderlecht in the 42nd minute after being freed by Sven Kums
Anderlecht went into the break with a 1-0 lead
Mouscronnois equalized quickly in the second half. Omar Govea took advantage of a poor pass out of defence to put a shot out of reach of Frank Boeckx and made it 1-1- before Onyekuru netted the winner 10 minutes from regulation time
Onyekuru has now scored seven goals in 14 league appearances in the Belgian first division.
He was replaced by Ghanaian Dennis Appiah in the 86th minute
Former U20 & U23 star Taiwo Awoniyi was in action for Mouscron and lasted the entire 90 minutes
