In the Belgian First Division, another Nigerian striker, Joseph Akpala got in among the goals for KV Oostende as they earned a 3-2 triumph over Samuel Kalu's Gent.

Akpala took a pass from teammate, Emmanuel Banda in the 76th minute to power in a sizzling shot into the bottom right corner, his fifth goal in the league this campaign.
