Wilfred Ndidi’s Genk Thursday night squeezed into the Europa League third qualifying round on penalties after Buducnost of Montenegro reversed a 2-0 first leg loss to drag this clash to a penalty shootout.
Ndidi’s Belgian club won the first game 2-0 a week ago only for Buducnost to reverse the defeat with two first half goals.
The game then dragged into extra to the credit of Genk who played a man short from the 75th
minute, when Ghana’s Bennard Kumordzi was sent off after a straight red card.
Ndidi from Nath Boys of Lagos played the entire game as Genk hung on to win 4-2 on penalties.
They will now clash with Cork City of Republic of Ireland for a place in the final qualifying playoffs.
