The Nigerian duo of Kingsley Madu and Aliko Bala were part of the Zulte Waregem team that lifted the Belgian cup courtesy a 4-2 penalty win over KVV Oostende after both team played out a 3-3 draw after extra time .

Madu who joined the team in the summer from Slovakian side AS Trencin has been sparingly used this season, so too Bala who also joined the team from same club like Madu during the January transfer window.

They were both unused substitutes for the game, which saw former Super Eagles forward Joseph Akpalla introduced by Oostende late into the game.

Madu will fly to London on Monday morning to team up with the Super Eagles ahead of their upcoming friendly games against Senegal and Burkina Faso later in the month.

Bala is yet to be capped by Nigeria at any level despite his sterling performances while in Slovakia, however he is reportedly being closely monitored by the handlers of the senior national team of Nigeria.
