Odey Excited Over UCL Debut Goal Against Liverpool

Former MFM striker Stephen Odey reacted after scoring UEFA Champions League debut goal in Genk’s 4-1 loss to Liverpool on Wednesday night at Luminus Arena.

The 21-year-old was introduced as an 81st-minute substitute for Super Eagles star Paul Onuachu.

The Nigerian U23 forward helped the Blue-White score their consolation goal in the match after collecting a through pass from the Democratic Republic of the Congo's Dieumerci N'Dongala before he shot home a low effort past Alisson in the 88th minute.

Odey, who joined Genk this June from Swiss club FC Zurich – his first club in Europe after his move from Nigerian side MFM FC, took to his social media to celebrate the debut goal in the Champions League.

The late goal could not inspire the Belgian top-flight outfit’s fight-back as they suffered their second loss in Group E.

Genk still languishes at the bottom of the group with a point after three games.
