'New Aubameyang' Nets Maiden Goal For Club Brugge Ahead Of Season OpenerPublished: July 22, 2019
New Club Brugge signing David Okereke netted his maiden goal for the Belgian club as they beat Sporting CP on penalties in a pre-season game on Friday evening.
The Nigeria U23 international, whose playing style has drawn comparisons to Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, broke the offside trap before slotting into the Sporting CP goal in the 15th minute.
Okereke was in fine form for Spezia throughout last season which earned him a summer move to Club Brugge who paid a club record fee of eight million euros to secure his services.
He was denied three times by goalkeeper Ribeiro before the game went to a shootout to decide the winner.
The two teams could still not be separated after five penalties each and it was Okereke who scored the winning penalty in sudden death.
Everything is pointing to the fact that the 21-year-old will make his competitive debut for Club Brugge when they take on Waasland-Beveren on match day one of the Belgian First Division A this coming Saturday at the Freethielstadion.
