Belgium top division side Gent had their Nigerian forward Samuel Kalu to thank after he rose from the bench to score both goals which gave them a 2-0 win over Waasland Beveren in a First Division A game in Belgium.
Kalu was introduced in the 66th minutes with scores levelled at 0-0 and the 20 year old settled into the game nicely, slotting home his first of the game in nine minutes after his introduction.
Five minutes from full time he completed his brace which wrapped all three points for his team, thanks to his fellow Nigerian Moses Simon whose strong effort was parried onto the path of Kalu to score.
The brace took the goal tally of Kalu to three in seven games, same amount of goals he scored last season from 16 games following his signing in the January transfer window.
In the same game out of favour Super Eagles midfielder Anderson Esiti was on for 70 minutes before he was substituted in the game where he picked up a booking in the 50th minute.
