Super Eagles forward Henry Onyekuru could make his first appearance for Anderlecht against Standard Liege at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium on Thursday evening, four months after suffering a knee injury in December, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Onyekuru made Anderlecht’s substitutes bench on Sunday in their 2-1 win over Club Brugge in a Belgian Pro League playoffs 1 game after featuring in two reserve matches.
“The late goal Anderlecht conceded denied Onyekuru a chance to play against Club Brugge on Sunday,” a source close to the player told CSN.
“He (Onyekuru) expects to get some minutes against Standard Liege on Thursday to build his confidence to stand a chance to compete for a World Cup place in the Siper Eagles squad.”
Onyekuru was impressive at the initial stage of his loan move to Anderlecht, netting 10 times in 28 games.
