Nigerian Exports: Young Guns Ekong, Awoniyi, Ajagun, Omoijuanfo & Umar On Target Liverpool loanee Taiwo Awoniyi, 20, was on target in Royal Excel Mouscron's 2-2 draw with Mechelen at Stade Le Canonnier on Saturday.

On 26 minutes, the Nigeria U23 international fired home a loose ball inside the penalty area after his header was blocked by a Mechelen defender and doubled his team's advantage in the process.

Awoniyi has now tallied four goals across all competitions and has shown his creativity and unselfishness by providing three assists in eight games.

Still in Belgium, ex-Flying Eagles skipper Abdul Ajagun netted his second goal in the Belgian First Division A but could not prevent Kortrijk from losing 2-1 to KV Oostende at Guldensporenstadion.

Elsewhere, William Troost-Ekong will be hoping to take his good form into national team duty, after scoring the solitary goal for Bursaspor in their 3-1 loss at Kayserispor in the Turkish Super Lig.

International teammate Mikel Agu produced the assist for Troost-Ekong's goal in the 39th minute.

2016 Rio Olympics star Aminu Umar somehow managed to open his goalscoring account for the season in Osmanlıspor's 3-0 rout of Kenneth Omeruo's Kasımpaşa, despite being challenged by the goalkeeper and a defender.

Over to the Norwegian Tippeligaen, Ohi Omoijuanfo continues to occupy top spot in the scoring charts with 17 goals, after scoring two second half goals as Stabaek beat Vålerenga 4-2 at Nadderud Stadion (Bærum).
