Nigeria’s Cyriel Dessers has hailed Super Eagles striker and club teammate, Paul Onuachu for his immediate impact in their opening day win away at Zulte Waregem, reports.


The former Heracles Almelo striker, who started ahead of Onuachu in the clash, told afterwards that his compatriot’s impact from the bench was a big morale booster as it gave me more freedom to operate.


“It was great to play with Paul; he really changed the game today (Sunday) and we helped each other and created spaces for each other. The linkup play was fantastic.

Super-sub Onuachu came off the bench to grab the equalizer for Genk who was down at half time before he then forced a penalty moments later and Dessers stepped up to convert and seal a 2-1 win.
