Nigeria striker Victor Boniface produced a stoppage time strike to snatch all three points in Royal Union Saint-Gilloise’s 2-1 win away at Eupen in the Jupiler League on Sunday.

Last week Thursday, the former Nigeria U20 forward came up clutch for his side in the dramatic 3-2 victory against Malmo FF in the Europa League and repeated the feat again.

The 23-year-old attacker netted his second league goal in six appearances since joining the side from Bodo/Glimt.

Boniface, who is a product of Real Sapphire, has scored three goals and provided two assists in all competitions for Royal Union Saint-Gilloise.

He departed Bodø/Glimt after scoring 23 goals this summer.

His goal came after the sending off of Ghanaian star Mubarak Wakaso in the first minute of stoppage.

Simon Adingra gave Saint-Gilloise the lead inside the opening eight minutes, but they were pegged back by the hosts 10 minutes later through Boris Lambert.

The victory moved Royal Union Saint-Gilloise into fifth on the standings as they bounced back from last week’s defeat to KRC Genk.
