The Ghanaian forward scored the opening goal of the match to put the visitors 1-0 up after just 15 minutes into the game against UEFA Europa League side Union St Gilliose.
He found the back of the net for the Blue and Whites outfit from an improbable angle as he found the right hand corner with a beautiful strike.
Loic Lapoussin equalized for the home team after 74 minutes to restore parity for St Gilliose.
Second half substitute, Mbwana Samatta scored very late in the additional time period to secure a 2-1 win for Genk to send them second on the league table.
The 24-year-old Ghanaian forward has four goals, one assist in seven Belgium Jupiler Pro League this season for Genk.
