Indomitable Lions of Cameroon and Waasland Beveren full back Serge Leuko provided an assist for one of his side’s goals in a 3-2 win away at Mechelen during last Sunday’s Belgian Jupiler Pro League outing.
The full-back was handed a rare opportunity in the starting XI alongside compatriot George Mandjeck who was in the heart of the midfield.
Waasland endured a difficult start to the game conceding in the 27th minute through Geoffry Hairemans in a dramatic afternoon.
The host protected the lead till the break but much was reserved for the second segment.
The exciting second-half of the encounter provided its first moment of attraction in the 47th minute when the Cameroon-born defender teed-up midfielder Daan Heymans to equalize.
The goal completely changed the pace of the game and two minutes later Waasland Beveren scored their second through Aboubakary Koita off an assist from Geoffry Hairemans.
At 2-1 for Waasland Beveren, Mechelen had to score or lose at home.
The host secured a second goal through 26-year-old Swedish midfielder Kerim Mrabti who made it 2-2 at the 60th minute but unfortunately not even a point was secured.
A 67th minute goal from Leonardo Bertone made it 3-2 for the visiting side.
Waasland Beveren stood their grounds in the remaining 23 minutes succeeding in going without conceding in that time to win all three points.
Both Cameroon’s played the full game for the visitors.
The host ended the game with ten-men after Siemen Voet saw straight red in the 36th minute when his side was leading.
Waasland Beveren moves up to the 14th spot in the 18 Clubs championship ahead of their trip to Ngadeu Ngadjui’s 12th-placed Gent next weekend on Wednesday in a match-day 17 fixture.
