Luqman makes senior team debut for KV Kortrijk in Belgium's Jupiler League

PETALING JAYA: Young Malaysian striker Luqman Hakim Shamsuddin (pic) has finally made his debut for KV Kortrijk, but it was not the best of starts for him as his team were defeated 1-3 by Anderlecht at the Guldenspoen Stadion on Saturday (Oct 24).

The 18-year-old, who is a product of the Akademi Mokhtar Dahari (AMD) and a key player for the national under-19 team, came on in the 74th minute replacing rightback Peter Golubovic.

Lukas Nmecha was the toast for Anderlecht as he scored in the sixth and 65th, while Percy scored in the 30th minute.

Ilombe Mboyo scored Kortrijk’s goal in the 87th minute, where he buried in a penalty, in which Luqman was involved.

Since joining Kortrijk in August, Luqman has been impressive in their Under-21 side and has scored three goals for them. Luqman’s debut against Anderlecht also means that he is the first Malaysian to play in the Belgian Jupiler League.
