Prolific 19 year old Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru who is reportedly high on the radar of German Bundesliga side Hoffeinheim, did his reputation a whole lot of good with his 4th goal in 9 games for Eupen in Belgium.

Onyekuru scored the opening goal in as AS Eupen crash to a 1-4 loss at home to Royal Excel Mouscron in a league game decided at the Kehrwegstadion.

He now has 4 goals from the first nine games of the season in Belgium, two short of his total of 6 goals last season from 19 games while they were in the second division.

The Nigerian is one of the shining light of the newly promoted Belgian side, who are currently finding it hard to adjust to life in the top division as they are currently placed 15th on the 16 team table.

Eupen also has two other Nigerians on their books in Anthony Bassey and Odeni George Jamabo but the duo have made 6 and 1 appearances this season respectively.
