Genk striker Onuachu tests positive for coronavirus

Nigeria international and Genk star Paul Onuachu has tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday. The striker has returned to the Luminus Arena amid the relaxation of lockdown in major cities across the globe.

The Smurfs were subjected to a Covid-19 test in the build-up to Thursday’s preseason game against Eendracht Termien with only the Nigerian testing positive.

Onuachu joined the Blue-White last summer from Danish side Midtjylland and has become a key component of Hannes Wolf’s team.

Before the Belgian topflight was cancelled due to the pandemic, the Super Eagles striker scored 10 goals and provided two assists which helped his side to a seventh-place finish.

Onuachu made his Super Eagles debut against Egypt in a friendly and has now featured six times for the three-time African champions.
