Onyekuru, Awoniyi Score In Cup Wins; Kayode Makes First Girona Start

By James Agberebi:

Super Eagles striker Henry Onyekuru was the hero for Anderlecht as he scored the only goal in their 1-0 away win against Westerlo in the Belgian Cup round of 32 fixture on Wednesday night.

Onyekuru, who is on loan from Everton, scored in the 66th minute to send Anderlecht into round 16.

Onyekuru was also on target for Anderlecht in their 2-2 away draw against Kortrijk in the league last weekend.

In another Belgian Cup round of 32 game, Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi was among the goals for Mouscron in their 3-1 home win against second division club Tubize.

Awoniyi gave Mouscron the lead in the 27th minute before a brace from Dorin Rotariu in the 32nd and 70th minutes secured the win for Mouscron.
