The fine form of Eupen Nigerian forward Henry Onyekuru has caught the attention of the coach of the Nigeria national team Gernot Rohr, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Last night Onyekuru took his season goal tally to 10 for the season in Eupen’s 4-0 win over Kortrijk in the Belgian Cup, his second goal in consecutive game after netting against Charleroi over the weekend.
19 year old Onyekuru is in his first season in the Belgian top flight league after winning promotion with Eupen to the top division, where his six goals played a big role in their eventual promotion.
” We aware of his exploits in Belgium, am very happy and have seen his games. I love him a lot. He has something I fancy and love in a forward, he is doing well in a league that is well respected”, Rohr told Owngoalnigeria.com in London.
” Too early to say if we are going to call him up but we are watching him at close quarters and monitoring his progress, hopefully, if he keeps performing well for his team, then we have no choice than to call him up”.
