Eagles Round-Up: Onuachu Bags 24th Goal Of Season In Genk’s Away Loss; Sadiq On Target As Omeruo’s Late Winner For Leganes Sinks Almeria

Paul Onuachu was on target for Genk but it was not enough as they lost 3-1 away to Oostende, in the Belgian Jupiler on Wednesday, Completesports.com reports.

It was Onuachu’s 23rd goal in the league and 24th in all competitions for Genk in the current campaign.

Also, it was a return to scoring in the league after failing to find the back of the net in his side’s last two fixtures in the Belgian top-flight.

In action for Genk was Onuachu’s compatriot Cyriel Dessers who was replaced in the 64th minute.

Onuachu opened scoring in the 10th minute from the penalty spot to give his side the lead.

But a brace from Makhtar Gueye, both from the penalty spot on 22nd and 26th minutes and a 58th minute strike from Arthur Theate secured the win for Oostende.

Sadiq gave Almeria the lead on eight minutes before Borja Barton equalised for Leganes on 48 minutes.

And in the 95th minute Omeruo scored what proved to be the winning goal which was also his first this season.

Sadiq’s goal took his tally in the league to 12 and 14 in all competitions this season for Almeria.

Leganes are in 4th place on 46 points and are behind Almeria who are in third place on 49 points.

And in the Saudi Arabia Pro League Odion Ighalo did not have the best of full debut for Al Shabab as they lost 2-1 at home to Al Fateh FC.

The former Manchester United striker, who scored on his debut for Al Shabab, was taken off in the 63rd minute.

    Men! Rohr na ur hand e dey now no fall my hand…A good coach can build a solid team from the talents we have available at this moment…we might not have players in top clubs but we have very good players scoring and playing major roles for their clubs beit in relegation battles, struggles to get promoted to the top tier of their soccer leage to battling for top scorer and some competing for silverware…God bless all Nigerian players.

  • Nice one from onuachu, big number 9 (sadiq), and even omerua who scored a vital goal for his club in their quest to gain promotion back to la liga. It will be a keen contest for promotion seekers in Spanish second division. Sadiq is on fire. I hope he can hit or even exceed the 20 goal mark this season, onuachu is on his way to reaching and possibly exceeding the 30 goal mark. I believe osimhen will get back to his goal scoring best very soon as well. All in all Super Eagles players are the most in form players of African descent this season. I wish them all the best for the remainder of the season. And I look forward to seeing how the coach of the Super Eagles will manage the team in the two remaining qualifying games.

      You’re right but at the moment I still give it to Algeria, Senegal and less I forget Morocco team led by inform Enyesri and Muniur. Nigeria with a better coaching technique can hold its own against any team but at the moment we are still struggling against average teams because of political coaching.

    Quite an interesting and explosive game! Happy for both Omeruo and Sadiq for scoring in the game, but I’d really wished that Almeria had won and gone top of the league. That way both Sadiq and Omeruo will stand a chance of promotion to La Liga (Almeria on automatic promotion and Leganes through the playoffs). As it stands now, Leganes doesn’t have a very good chance of finishing in the top two positions, and if Almeria also fails to finish in the top two, then only one of them will stand a chance of promotion through the playoffs.
    The best scenario would be both finishing in the top two positions, but that scenario seems far fetched with Leganes in their current 4th position, and five points behind the league leaders.
    But, everything is possible. Almeria still stands a very good chance of going top of the league or at least finishing in the second place, and with some luck, Leganes could also achieve same or at least finish in a position for the playoffs where anything can happen. I can only wish these awesome Nigerian players the best of luck in their current push towards the finishing line.
    For Sadiq, I really have no fears because, even if the unthinkable happens and Almeria fails to gain promotion, the guy has done enough to get La Liga teams to come poaching in the next season. But of course, it’s best to get everything in the bag by gaining promotion with Almeria

      And I forgot to mention Onuachu in the Belgian Jupiler League. Kudos to “gangling” Paul (apologies to the great Ernest Okonkwo – “gangling Rashidi Yekini”). Although, Genk lost by a “wide” margin, Paul keeps on scoring. I join in wishing him to achieve the goal of 30 goals plus. Cheers, big Paul!

  • Just saw sadiq’s goal against leganes. A real strikers goal. He was cool and calm on the ball with two defenders in front of him , he went pass one and fired the ball into the net, another great goal by the big number 9. He even scored a second goal that was ruled out by VAR dont know why, but all in all it was nice to see the two Nigerian players put in their best for their clubs.
