Super Eagles forward Cyriel Dessers continued his amazing form in the new campaign.
Dessers returned to KRC Genk after spending the 2021/2022 season in the Dutch Eredivisie with Feyenoord.
He was a revelation for the Dutch club both in the league and UEFA Conference League where he netted 10 goals to win the golden boot of the tournament.
The league started on Sunday and Genk played away to champions Club Brugge and lost 3-2.
Skov Olsen netted the opening goal for Brugge in the 22nd minute before Dessers equalized in the 30th.
Tresor put Genk in front in the 47th minute and Vanaken levelled for the hosts while Olsen completed his brace at injury time to hand Brugge the maximum points.
Paul Onuachu wasn’t dressed for the game on Sunday.
