The Belgian Jupiler League has an impressive amount of Africans plying their trade in the division and many of them were in action over the past weekend.

We begin the round up for this week with Ivory Coast striker Gohi Bi Zoro Cyriac.

The ASEC Mimosas academy graduate came off the bench to score a stoppage time equaliser for Anderlecht against Sporting Lokeren in a 1-1 draw. His late winner takes his goal tally in the league to three, in 14 matches.

Ghana winger Frank Acheampong, Democratic Republic of Congo defender Chance Mbemba and Guinea winger Ibrahima Conte also featured for Anderlecht.

South Africa goalkeeper Darren Keet kept a clean sheet in KV Kortrijk’s 4-0 away trouncing of Cercle Brugge.

DRC full-back Landry Mulemo was only part of Kortrijk’s joyous day for one half as he was substituted during the interval. However he probably wouldn’t swap places with his compatriot Junior Kabananga who was on the wrong side of the 4-0 defeat.

Senegalese midfielder Ismaila N’Diaye came on for Cercle Brugge, after they had conceded the fourth goal, seemingly to limit further damage.

Finally, Mali midfielder Abdoulay Diaby scored the equalising goal in Mouscron-Peruwelz’s 3-1 away win against Westerlo. Recent Africa Football Shop interviewee Mitch Apau and Ivorian Jean Romaric Koffi were on the losing side.
