Nigeria’s duo of Victor Osimhen and Taiwo Awoniyi were among the scorers for their respective clubs as they continued to fly the country’s flag high in the Belgian Jupiler League, reports.
VICTOR OSIMHEN: The Eagles’ forward scored his 11th league goal of the season to help Sporting Charleroi to a 2-1 comeback win over Royal Antwerp on Sunday night.
The highly-rated forward who has been called up for Nigeria’s upcoming game against Seychelles and South Africa equalized for the visitors from the penalty spot on the 31st minute after Amara Baby had put the hosts ahead seven minutes earlier.
Massimo Bruno then struck 13 minutes from time to hand Charleroi all three points as they prepare for the final match of the regular season next weekend.
TAIWO AWONIYI: The on-loan Liverpool forward continued his amazing form in front of goal as he scored for the seventh time since in eight games to help 9-man Royal Excel Mouscron force a 1-1 draw at home to Sint Truidense.
The former U-17 World Cup winner has been in the headline for the past few days with talks over his future mounting following his superlative performance since rejoining Mouscron on loan last January.
With his side down after 14 minutes, Awoniyi popped up with the equalizer three minutes after the hour mark to rescue the host who had to play most of the match with just 9 men following red cards to the duo of Nikola Guilan and Frank Boya.
Awoniyi has now scored 7 league goals and assisted another two in just eight games making amends for his abysmal first half of the season where he failed to score in any of his 12 appearances for KAA Gent.
