Eupen have so far held their own in the top league after they won promotion last season.

They are now 12th on the 16-team table with 20 points from 21 matches.

"I am happy for the victory, it was a good job from the team as we fought together as a team,” Onyekuru told AfricanFootball.com

"I am excited and thankful for my goals as well as the man of the match award.

"In football everything is possible, but my priority is to help my team remain in the league at the end of the season."

Onyekuru has attracted interests among several top European clubs, but has insisted he is staying put thus far.
