Former Nigeria U-20 skipper Abdul Jeleel Ajagun scored one goal, and made another as Kortrijk trashed KAA Gent 4-1 in a Belgian Cup tie on Tuesday.

The 24 year old scored his team’s 3rd goal in the 40th minute, before setting up Jovan Stojanović for Kortrijk’s fourth of the night on 74 minutes.

Ajagun’s compatriot Anderson Esiti was in action for Gent in the match, just as Super Eagles’ Moses Simon and 20-year-old Samuel Kalu came off the bench for a cameo for the visitors.

Deployed in the number 10 role yesterday, Ajagun who is yet to be capped by Nigeria’s senior national team – Super Eagles, proved to be a handful for the visitors.

He currently has 5 goals in the 2017/2018 season for the modest Belgian side.
