Uche Agbo and his Standard Liege team-mates kicked off their 2018-19 Jupiler League campaign on a winning note, as they beat KAA Gent 3-2.
Agbo was in action from start to finish, while two of his compatriots who made Gent’s matchday squad — Esiti Anderson and Taiwo Awoniyi — came on in the second half.
The third Nigerian in the De Buffaloes matchday squad — Samuel Kalu — was an unused substitute.
Nigeria international winger Moses Simon is still recuperating from the injury that cost him a place in Nigeria’s World Cup squad, and was not listed by coach Yves Vanderhaeghe.
