GAMES Anderlecht has won again after two defeats. The game against Eupen did not turn into an exciting evening. A wonderful moment was there when Francis Amuzu, one of the three debutants, scored and cried tears of happiness.
After the defeat against Club Brugge, Hein Vanhaezebrouck changed some things: captain Hanni was on the bench and with Albert Sambi Lokonga and Francis Amuzu he had two 18-year-olds debutants. Teodorczyk was also back in the starting line up and got the first chance after nine minutes. Leye prevented the 1-0.
Halfway through the first half, Trebel passed to youth player Amuzu. The young winger finished it on a way no single player of the first team would currently do. Amuzu went to the bench and fell into the arms of his coach and fellow players. A wonderful moment.
Teodorczyk was close to 2-0 at the stroke of half time. Completely in line with his season, the Polish striker missed the ball. Onyekuru also got a good chance, but he shot on Van Crombrugge. And Eupen, are you wondering? They barely reached anywhere near Sels.
After the break there was actually less to see than before. Only after 20 minutes there was some excitement when the audience awarded Amuzu with an applause when being substituted. Trebel also was substituted and Hanni and Kayembe, a third debutant, came in their place. Five minutes later, Hanni had a header on the post.
And that was it. Anderlecht took three points against the last team in the ranking thanks to a goal by 18-year-old debutant Francis Amuzu.
