Belgian Jupiler: Okereke On Target, Dennis Benched In 10-Man Club Brugge’s Home Win

David Okereke made an immediate impact as he scored after just coming on, in 10-man Club Brugge’s comfortable 3-0 home win against Eupen in Saturday’s Belgian Jupiler, Completesports.com reports.

Okereke was introduced with 10 minutes left in the game and got on the score sheet on 82 minutes to make it 3-0.


It was Okereke’s fourth goal in 14 league appearances for Club Brugge so far this season.

He has now scored three goals in his last five league games.


His Nigerian teammate Emmanuel Dennis did not feature as he was an unused substitute.

After a goalless first half Noa Lang broke the deadlock netting two quick goals in the 52nd and 58th minutes.

However, Brugge were reduced to 10 men following a straight red card to Hans Vanaken.

The win saw Brugge take their points tally to 39, five points clear over second placed Genk who have two games in hand.

  • Emmanuel Dennis does not get playing time like he used to after that his disciplinary issues

      @Osh my brother that is what pride can do to someone. He might have taught without him his club can’t win a match. May God touch the coach so he will forgive him and give him a second chance.

    The same pride entered Dele Ali of Spur today Mori no longer start him.

  • Pride comes before the fall. Dennis must have felt he is the new ronaldo. His headstrong attitude has earned him time on the bench. No coach wants a difficult player no matter how talented you are. He should humble himself, apologize and get back to work.
    Okereke should put in more effort, he should be starting games and not coming in off the bench.
    This is the belgian league and not one of the top 5 leagues in Europe. They should at least be starting games if they hope to be part of the super eagles set up in the future.
