Super Eagles forward Paul Onuachu and Cyriel Dessers were both on target in Genk’s 4-0 victory over Eupen at the  Luminus Arena on Match Day 11 of the Belgian Jupiler League.

The Nigerian Internationals put up impressive displays and it was Onuachu, who was making his eighth start for the Blue and white who got them off the mark with his ninth goal of the season, scoring from the penalty spot in the fifth minute.

The Beam-pole-like forward then notched up his first assist of the season when he set up his international teammate, Dessers, who poked home his third league goal of the season.

Belgium’s Theo Bongonda scored a double for Genk as they ran out victorious and moved up to fourth on the league table.

Onuachu was placed on stand-by by Gernot Rohr in the recently released 24-man shortlist ahead of the double-header against Serrie Leone, while Dessers was left out completely.
