LOAN WATCH: Everton winger Onyekuru continues hot form with winning goal for Anderlecht

20-year-old Henry Onyekuru, who is on loan from Everton this season, scored the decisive goal in Anderlecht's 2-1 win over Royal Excel Mouscron this weekend.

Anderlecht went in to halftime with a 1-0 lead, thanks to a Massimo Bruno goal in the 42nd minute; yet, after halftime, Royal Excel Mouscron were able to equalise in 52nd minute through Omar Govea.

Onyekuru, who joined the Toffees in the summer before being immediately loaned out to the Belgian giants, then struck home the final goal of the match in the 80th minute, before being substituted off in the 87th minute.

The former KAS Eupen man then took to Twitter to celebrate his goal and post a video of it:

Onyekuru, who made his debut for the Nigerian national team as a substitute against Algeria on November 11, is now up to eight goals for the season in all competitions.

Anderlecht next play Bayern Munich, at home, on Wednesday 22nd November, in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.
