A 19-year old Nigerian forward, Samuel Kalu has made it into the Team of the Week in Belgium for matchday 3.

The Nigerian youngster put up a Man-of-the-Match performance in the KV Mechelen vs KAA Gent match, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Kalu scored the only goal for his team in that encounter.

Unfortunately, while Kalu was grabbing the headlines with his performance and first goal in the Belgian league this season, his compatriots, Moses Simon and Anderson Esiti were relegated to the bench for Gent.

Belgium team of the week

For the weekend game, Kalu was deplored on the right side of midfield where he functioned exceptionally well

This is Kalu's second season in Belgium after he joined up from Slovak club AS Trencin during the winter transfer window in the 2016/17 season.

He scored 3 goals in 16 league appearances last season but definitely hopes to do more this term; especially after starting out this early.
