Henry Onyekuru Nominated For Goal Of The Week In BelgiumHenry Onyekuru's goal against Royal Excel Mouscron in the last round of matches in the Belgian First Division A was eye-catching enough to be a contender for the Goal of the Week award.

Top Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad has picked Onyekuru's second half effort and strikes from Kaveh Rezaei (Charleroi) and Ruud Vormer (Club Brugge) as the best goals of the week in the Belgian top division.

As at the time of this report, Onyekuru was third in the poll with 13 percent, behind Vormer (68 percent) and Rezaei (19 percent).

With the game tied at 1-1, the Nigeria international combined with Algerian Sofiane Hanni to get free in the penalty area, before firing past goalkeeper Logan Bailly in the 80th minute.

The Everton loanee now has seven goals in fourteen appearances for Anderlecht in the regular season.

Onyekuru made his competitive debut for the Nigerian national team when he was introduced in the 71st minute of a World Cup qualifier against Algeria on November 10, 2017.
