Paul Onuachu did not enjoy his trip to London with Genk following the 3-0 hammering they were handed by West Ham United in a group H encounter at the London Olympic Stadium on Thursday night.

Onuachu himself has not found the back of the net in 256 minutes for both club and country. His goal drought in that period has come in a total four games; all have ended in defeats.



Defeat for Onyekuru’s Olympiacos in Germany


Henry Onyekuru came off the bench in the second half for Olympiacos but the Winger could not stop his side’s defeat at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt in their group D clash.

Onyekuru, who returned at the weekend from a brief injury spell on the sidelines, was introduced on the hour mark.
However, the Greek champions were humbled 3-1 by their hosts as they suffered their first defeat of the UEL campaign.
