Super Eagles Striker, Onuachu nets 26th goal of the season

Super Eagles striker, Paul Onuachu, scored as Genk sealed a 3-2 victory over OH Leuven on Monday.

Onuachu’s late effort took his tally to 26 goals after 31 league appearances.

The former Midtjylland striker sealed maximum points for the visitors in Heverlee after goals from Kristian Thorstvedt, Theo Bongonda had put them ahead.

The Nigerian now has 28 goals in total this season (including two Cup goals), which makes him the highest scoring Super Eagles star in Europe so far this term.

Over a week ago, Onuachu continued his fine form, scoring a goal each in their last two 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.

He scored the late match-winning goal in the Super Eagles’ 1-0 result against Benin in Porto-Novo and later sealed their 3-0 triumph over Lesotho in Lagos last Tuesday.
