KAS Eupen sensational forward, Henry Onyekuru, netted his 20th league goal of the season as his team beat Royal Exel Mouscron 2-0 in their last home game of the Belgian Pro League on Wednesday.

The Nigerian-born 19-year-old striker who is now joint-top scorer with Lukasz Teodorczyk of Anderlecht in the Belgian Pro League continued with his impressive scoring form yesterday netting his 20th goal of the season.

Jeffren Suarez’s 42nd minute goal was enough for the hosts to end the first half claiming a one goal lead off a well tailored  pass from Christian Brüls.

Onyekuru put the game beyond the visitors with eight minutes to end the match. The teenage striker dribbled past his makers before he slotted home the second goal of the game with a great finish.
