Super Eagles duo of Paul Onuachu and Cyriel Dessers won the Belgian Cup with Genk after they emerged winners in the final on Sunday.

Genk claimed a 2-1 victory against Standard Liege at the Stade Roi Baudouin in Brussel to wrap up a fine season, in which they qualified for the championship round in the league.

Nigeria’s Onuachu was in action against Liege and was on for 90 minutes in the thrilling encounter.

His international teammate Dessers was an unused substitute for Genk.
