UCL: Arokodare answers Genk critics with goal

Under-fire striker Tolu Arokodare hit target for Genk to stay on track for a place in the UEFA Europa Conference League group stage with a 2-1 home win over Turkish club Adana Demirspor.

It was his third goal of the season and was a fitting answer to critics who say the Nigerian striker is not good enough to lead the Genk attack.

Arokodare drew the home team level on 77 minutes with a half volley from deep inside the box, before they went on to win the first leg playoff 2-1.

A direct replacement for compatriot Paul Onuachu in January, Arokodare has struggled to impress for the Belgian club.

His goals have been few and far between as Genk have not hidden their quest to bring back Onuachu after a tough time in England with Southampton.

Club fans cheered when the giant centre-forward was replaced in a league game at the weekend against Charleroi.
