Imoh nets ninth of the season



Ezekiel Imoh scored his ninth goal of the season for Belgian Pro League club, Standard Liege in their 6-1 success against Charleroi SC on Friday.

In freezing conditions at the Sclessin, the 19-year-old scored inside the first three minutes, prodding past the Charleroi keeper, Parfait Mandanda.

The goal did not count however as the referee called back the play to award Standard a penalty and sent off the Charleroi defender, Elvedin Džinic who had fouled the Nigerian just before the goal.

Yoni Buyens converted the penalty in the fifth minute to give Standard an early advantage.

Ezekiel eventually got his name on the score sheet in the 65th minute as side ran out emphatic 6-1 winners.

Standard Liege have now climbed to fourth in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League with 32 points from 19 matches, eight points adrift of the leaders, Anderlecht who have played a game less.

Ezekiel is also the sixth top scorer in the Pro Jupiler League as he is just four goals short of the total posted by OH Leuven’s Ibou who occupies the summit of the goal scorer’s standings.
