Nigerian youngster Henry Onyekuru said he is upbeat his team Eupen will still make it to the final of the Belgian Cup despite losing the first leg semi-final 1-0 to Zulte-Waregem.

The 19-year-old goal-getter told AfricanFootball.com that they put in their best not to lose on Wednesday, but conceded a goal late in the 80th minute.

"It was not a bad game, we still have it all. We tried not to concede since we couldn't get goals, but they scored with 10 minutes to play, it was painful, but that's football,” Onyekuru told AfricanFootball.com

“This is just the first half as far as I am concerned, we have the second leg which I believe we will win to get to the final."

Eupen host the second leg semi-final on February 1.
