Ghana’s forward Joseph Paintsil bags brace in Genk’s big win over Eupen


Ghana forward, Joseph Paintsil scored twice for KRC Genk in the Belgium Jupiler Pro League on Saturday evening against KAS Eupen.

He broke the deadlock of the match to put the hosts 1-0 up early in the game after just three minutes from a very difficult angle from the right side of the box into the bottom left corner.

Six minutes later, Paintsil was celebrating his second goal of the match as his right-footed shot from the center of the box went straight into the center of the goal post to make it 2-0 to the home team.

The visitors scored a consolation after 32 minutes but the hosts restored their two goals advantage before the first half break with Smail Prevljak scoring for Eupen before Patrik Hrosovsky made it 3-1.

Regan Charles-Cook scored early in the second half of the match to make it 3-2 and the visitors started believing again but Mike Tresor made sure Genk took all three points with a late goal to make the final score 4-2.

The 24-year-old Ghana International has two goals and one assist in three matches this season in the Belgium Jupiler Pro League for Genk.
