Super Eagles forward Moses Simon scored the winner for KAA Gent in their 3-2 friendly win against Belgian club Beerschot Wilrijk in a pre-season friendly game in the Netherlands on Saturday.
Gent raced to a 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Yuya Kubo and Mamadou Sylla in the 20th and 53rd minutes respectively.
In the 65th minute, Beerschot pulled a goal back though Placca to make it 2-1.
Beerschot were back on level terms following an own goal by Gent's Stefan Mitrovic in the 61st minute.
But Simon scored what proved to be the winner for Gent in the 72nd minute.
Simon's Nigerian teammates, Anderson Esiti and Samuel Kalu, were named on Gent's substitutes bench.
On Friday, Kalu scored in Gent's 3-1 win against RC Lens in another pre-season friendly game.
Gent will host Rheindorf Altach next Thursday in the first leg, third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
