Super Eagles defender Wilfred Ndidi re- enacted his penchant for scoring spectacular goals, with another to add to his collections in Genk 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao in the Europa League.

A reported target for Hamburg, Ndidi won the award for the best goal scored in the top flight league in Belgium last season, a screamer against Club Brugge.

Just when it appears like the former Nigeria junior international has forgotten where the back of the net. He reminded fans of Genk of his undoubted quality with a goal in the 83rd minute in their Europa league tie with Spanish side Bilbao to round up a 2-0 victory.

Ndidi got his latest worldie from over 30 yards, with a shot using the outside of his foot much to the admiration of the spectators who gave him a standing ovation after the strike.

Overall, he put in a hard shift in the game playing as a defensive midfielder by breaking up the opposition play and turning them into attack for his team, against the highly rated Spaniards.
