Nigeria forward Paul Onuachu got his third brace of the season for Belgian club KRC Genk while his compatriot Cyril Dessers got on the scoresheet as they secured a 4-2 victory over Royal Antwerp in Sunday’s Jupiler League match.

The match which took place at the Luminus Arena saw the lanky forward handed his 12th start of the season. Onuachu duly repaid the faith his coach had in him as he scored his second consecutive brace.

Onuachu brought his side back into contention when he drew parity with a fine effort in the 19th minute after receiving a timely pass from Daniel Munoz.

The Super Eagles attacker completed his brace in the 23rd minute when he beat goalkeeper Jean Butez to tuck home his 14th goal of the season.

His international teammate, Dessers, came on for Onuachu in the 82nd minute and sealed Genk’s victory six minutes after his introduction.
