Jonathan Afolabi scores brilliant first goal in Belgium

The former Bohemians striker opened his KV Kortrijk account tonight.

JONATHAN AFOLABI HAS opened his goalscoring account in Belgium.

The former Bohemians striker scored his first goal for KV Kortrijk in a dramatic 3-3 draw at Club Brugge tonight.

On his first start for the club, Afolabi pulled Kortrijk level at 1-1 in the 53rd minute of the Belgian Pro League clash.

And he did so in style, cutting onto his left just inside the box and firing into the bottom corner:

Kortrijk soon took the lead before the hosts hit back and it looked like it would finish 3-2,  but Djibi Seck was the late hero as he rescued a draw — and a crucial point on the road — in the 97th minute.

Afolabi’s side are bottom of the league, three points off Oud-Heverlee Leuven. Club Brugge, in contrast, are third.

The 2023 League of Ireland Premier Division top scorer joined on a two-and-a-half year deal in December.
