Nigerian youngster Henry Onyekuru has said he hopes to propel AS Eupen to create history by reaching the Belgian Cup final for the first time when they face Zulte-Waregem in a semi-final first leg today.

Onyekuru, who has been in superb form for his club, said his mind is set on scoring goals in the game so as to go step further to actualise his dream of cup glory.

"I am looking forward to start the 2017 with goal, we are ready for the semi-final of the cup and I am looking forward to help my team get to the historic final. Getting goals in the game and victory are my targets," Onyekuru said.

Promoted Eupen are holding their own in the Belgian top flight as they are now 13th on the table with 20 points after 21 matches.

Today’s opponents Zulte-Waregem, who have Nigeria international Kingsley Madu, are third in the standings with 40 points, just three points behind leaders Club Brugge.
