Eagles Watch – Esiti Shines, Simon Dazzles, Troost-Ekong Benched Again, Kalu & Rabiu Ibrahim Missing


A late minute goal from Henrik Dalsgaard helped Zulte-Waregem share the spoils with Gent in a Belgium Pro League game which ended 1-1.


As many as six Nigerian players were expected to be on show for both sides, with four on the books on Gent while two are with Zulte-Waregem but at the end only four got to feature in the game.

Anderson Esiti and Moses Simon where on from the start for Gent, and while Esiti lasted the entire duration of the game and gave a good impression of himself, Simon who also did very well was substituted in the 83rd minute.

Meanwhile for the second game running William Troost-Ekong was an unused substitute as the trio of Samuel Gigot, Rami Gershon and Stefan Mitrovic were preferred to him.

However Rabiu Ibrahim is still missing apparently due to the injury he sustained during their mid season camping in Spain, while Samuel Kalu who has been very impressive in his first two games for the club was also not listed for action.
