The 20-year-old marked his debut for Anderlecht by scoring the only goal of the game after coming off the bench in the second half.

Mukairu joined Anderlecht from Turkish Super Lig outfit Antalyaspor where he scored three goals in 27 appearances.

Sunday’s win means Anderlecht have now won back-to-back games in the league following victory against Kortrijk last time out.

They are now fifth on 20 points in the Belgian top flight.

    I guess so.20 years old and he’s on loan at Anderlecht from Antalyaspor, says a lot about his immense potentials.A great addition for Nigeria for sure.

    He just needs to work on his finishing. Work on scoring more goals and delivering more assists.
    Imagine a line up like this:

    Aina, Ekong, Balogun, Sanusi
    Ejaria, Olise
    Ejuke, Mukairu, Lookman

    No rest for the opponent. The Olise/Ejaria double pivot will protect the back four and be the launching pad for attacking moves. Like Mukairu, Ejuke and Lookman are also good at helping out defensively. Osimhen and co will put pressure on the opponent by pressing them high up the pitch.
    A defensively balanced, offensively explosive formation.
    And we have the likes of Chukwueze, Iwobi, Kalu, Aribo, Ndidi (when he becomes available, he will likely start), Etebo, Calvin Bassey, Ebuehi, Akpoguma, Semi Ajayi, Iheanacho, etc who can come in as replacements in their respective departments on the pitch.
    We need the very best available to represent us. With our best players, we can do much better!
