Promising Nigerian Striker Dennis Bonaventure Scores Fourteenth Career GoalPublished: October 01, 2017
Four Nigerian players were on parade at Jan Breydelstadion (Brugge) as Club Brugge registered their eighth win in the Belgian First Division A when they narrowly beat Gent 2-1.
Nigeria internationals Moses Simon and Anderson Esiti started for the visitors, Dennis Bonaventure made Brugge's starting XI and Gent number eighteen Samuel Kalu came on in the 76th minute.
It was Club Brugge that drew first blood when Dennis Bonaventure gave them the lead in the 16th minute with a header after a clever free-kick was floated into the box by Ruud Vormer.
The summer signing from Zorya Luhansk has now notched fourteen career goals since moving to Europe in March 2016, with eight of those strikes coming in the blue and black colours of Club Brugge.
Bonaventure made a blistering start to his career with Club Brugge, so much so that there are calls in some quarters for him to be invited to Nigeria's senior national team.
The 19-year-old trained with Nigeria's schoolboys, the Future Eagles, in his formative years.
