VIDEO: Karim Hafez scores first goal for Lierse as they’re thrashed 6-1

Karim HafezEgyptian starlet featured for 45 minutes and scored the opening goal of the game, while there wasn’t much to see from Ahmed Sayed ‘Zizo’ as  were thrashed 6-1 in the Jupiler Pro League against KVC Westerlo. 

The fast-paced match experienced an explosive start, as 18-year-old Egyptian defender Karim Hafez leapt and scored a powerful header in the 21st minute, which shattered KVC Westerlo’s goal area. However, just 5 minutes later, Westerlo’s 26-year-old Beninese attacker Frederic Gounongbe scored an equalizer, which just missed the hands of the goalkeeper.

Things did not get any better for Lierse, as 23-year-old Moroccan attacker, Mohammed Aoulad scored via a free-kick just outside the 18-yard box, which was precisely aimed at the top-side of the net – a lethal area the goalkeeper wouldn’t be able to reach. With an added two minutes to the first half, the Moroccan spectacularly scored again for a 3-1 lead.

After the tense half-time, Lierse coach Stanley Menzo substituted the young Karim Hafez  for 22-year-old Guinean attacker Alhassane Keita, who already scored 3 goals for Lierse this season.

Westerlo, however, were the ones who managed to score another goal as they bombarded the opposition’s penalty box. 28-year-old Ivorian attacker, Jean Romaric Kevin, easily slotted a goal past Lierse’s non-existent defense in the 52nd minute. Kevin scored another remarkable goal, just 20 minutes later, as the ball deflected off the right-hand post and traveled past the line.

In the 76th minute, Stanley Menzo replaced 18-year-old Ahmed Sayed ‘Zizo’ for 22-year-old Kenyan midfielder Ayub Timbe Masika, for more-experienced legs on the pitch.

Midfielder Nils Schouterden finalized the game with a 6-1 win via another free-kick in the 89th minute, from a highly dangerous position for a humiliating end to the long match for Lierse.

The game ensured the loudly-cheering Westerlo fans were not disappointed, as they are currently ranked 4th in the Belgian league table with 13 points, while Lierse claim bottom-place with only 5 points.

Lierse SK’s next Pro League fixture, will be on the 28th of September against Standard Liège.
