Nigeria: Onuachu scores debut goal in Genk defeat

Super Eagles forward, Paul Onuachu scores debut goal in KRC Genk 2-1 away defeat against Sporting Charleroi in Belgium Jupiler League.
The 25-year-old, who joined the Belgian side from Danish club FC Midtjylland on transfer deadline day, started his first league game as the visitors went in search of their fourth league win of the season.
However, KRC Genk were dealt a big blow when Sporting Charleroi scored twice in quick succession after Ryota Morioka found back of the net from the penalty spot in the 26 minutes before Shamar Nicholson made it 2-0 three minutes later as they went into the break with a comfortable lead.
Nigeria international then set up a nervy finish when his diving header from a superb cross from Jere Uronen just after the hour mark made it 2-1 but the visitors, however, failed to find the equalizer as they fell 2-1 away from home.
The defeat now leaves the defending champions in 7th position with 10 points from their opening 7 games.
