Nigerian striker Henry Chukwuemeka Onyekuru scored twice for AS Eupen in a 3-1 league win over KV Oostende on Tuesday in the Belgian Jupiler League.

Onyekuru, 19, opened scoring for the away team inside the opening one minute with a superb strike that stunned the homers.

He received a pass from Mamadou Sylla with his back to the goal, spun on a sixpence to leave his marker for dead, before producing a curling left-footed effort which flew past the Oostende goalkeeper Didier Ovono and into the top corner.

The Onitsha-born forward scored his second in the injury time of the second half after Sylla had doubled the lead for Eupen and Landry Dimata had pulled one back for Oostende.

It has been reported that the Nigerian declared that he will like to play for Premier League club Arsenal, and trying his best to impress the north London giants.

Onyekuru has scored 12 goals and created six assists for Eupen in 23 appearances this season..
