KRC forward, Stephen Odey on Thursday dedicated his first Champions League goal to his mother who was a year older on Tuesday.
Odey got Genk’s solitary goal after coming on as an 81st-minute substitute for Nigeria international, Peter Onuachu in their 4-1 defeat to Liverpool at home.
That notwithstanding, Odey who is yet to be invited to the national team still took to his Twitter handle to express his happiness.
“Not the result we wanted, but it ended that way. Hoping to get a better result in our next meeting & a goal,” reads a Tweet on Odey’s Twitter handle.
“I will like to dedicate my first @ChampionsLeague goal to my mum who marked her birthday on Tuesday as a birthday gift. Thanks for guiding me in the right path.”
The result means Genk have now played 15 matches in the competition without winning – more than any other side.
