Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi grabbed his first goal as a professional for Belgian club Genk against Zulte-Waregem on Friday.

The 18-year-old defensive midfielder ran half of the pitch to tap home a rebound after 16 minutes in the home game.

Ndidi, who joined Genk in January 2015, played the entire game.

He has made 18 appearances this season after he played in six games in the second half of last season.

However, Ndidi’s team finished the game with 10 men after their defender was sent off in the first half.

Genk won 2-1 to move to sixth on the table with 31 points from 22 matches, two points behind their opponents who are fifth.
