Stephen Odey marked his Uefa Champions League debut with a goal in Genk’s 4-1 loss to Liverpool on Wednesday.

The Nigeria youth international was introduced as an 81st-minute substitute for his compatriot Paul Onuachu and he helped the hosts score their only goal at the Luminus Arena.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s double and lone efforts from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah had given Liverpool a 4-0 lead before Odey’s consolation strike in the closing stages of the game.

Following an assist from the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s Dieumerci N’Dongala, the former MFM FC talisman poked home a low effort past Alisson in the 88th minute.

The late goal could not inspire Genk’s fight-back as they suffered their second loss in Group E.

The Belgian top-flight outfit still languish at the bottom of the group with a point after three matches. Next up for them is a trip to Anfield for the return fixture on November 5.
