Little known Nigeria youngster Paul Mukairu excited after scoring on his Anderlecht debut in the 1-0 win over Royal Antwerp at Lotto Park Sunday in a encounter.

The 20-year-old Abuja-born forward who is on a season-long loan from Turkish club Antalyaspor was brought on in the 62nd minute to replace Mustapha Bundu.

Mukairu wasted no time to announce himself in the Belgium Jupiler encounter as he broke the deadlock in the 76th minute with a well-taken strike after receiving a sumptuous pass from Albert Sambi Lokonga.

Anderlecht are now fifth on the table with 20 points from 11 matches.

Mukairu will hope to help Anderlecht continue their winning form when they take on Gent in their next league game on November 8.
