Published on: 18 January 2023

Ghana international, Joseph Paintsil continued his unstoppable form in Belgium on Tuesday night when he featured for KRC Genk in the exciting 3-2 win over Westerlo in the Pro League.

In a Round 21 game of the league season, the Black Stars asset started for his club as they played as the visiting team.

Just seven minutes into the first half, Joseph Paintsil displayed his creative ability as he set up Mohammed Aziz to net the opening goal of the game.

Later in the 24th minute, the talented winger scored himself to double the lead for KRC Genk.

While the visitors would go into the break with a healthy lead, Westerlo stunned the side in the first ten minutes of the second half.

Goals from Maxim De Cuyper and Thomas Van Den Keybus in the 53rd and 55th minutes respectively restored parity to the game.

Thankfully, Genk had enough quality and scored again in the 64th minute through Daniel Munoz to cruise to a 3-2 win at the end of the 90 minutes. It was Joseph Painstil that provided the assists after setting up Munoz.

The talented attacker now has seven goals and ten assists after making 17 appearances in the Belgian Pro League.

He appears to be in the form of his life and can only get better as the season progresses.
