Nigerian international, David Okereke made a stunning return to action for runaway leaders Club Brugge as he came off the bench to score twice in their 4-0 win over SV Zulte Waregem, AOIFootball.com reports.
Having failed to feature in any of their last three fixtures, the 22-year-old was once again listed among the substitutes with Premier League hot shot Emmanuel Dennis giving the nod to start alongside Krepin Diatta.
The Senegalese forward did however make good use of the opportunity when he opened scoring just on the half hour mark to give Brugge a narrow half time lead.
Okereke was then introduced for fellow countryman Emmanuel Dennis on the hour mark and he took the forward just 60 seconds to make his impact felt when he doubled their lead to make it 2-0 on 61 minute.
The Nigerian was on hand again three minutes later when he made it 3-0 before midfielder Ruud Vormer made it a perfect Boxing Day and a good end to the year to complete a comfortable 4-0 bashing.
The goals now sees Okereke take the initiative as the country’s top scorer in the division with his 9 strikes better than the duo of Paul Onuachu and Emmanuel Dennis who have 7 and 5 each, whilst out of favour forward Stephen Odey continues his search for regular playing time.
