Qualification for the Belgian Cup and a new player in one evening for Seraing

The conditions were dantesque, to the point of threatening the start of the second period. The wind and the rain hit the Sint-Eloois-Winkel lawn with vigor, but that did not prevent Seraing from punching his ticket for the sixth round of the Belgian Cup. “Mission accomplished against a quality team that had won all its league games”summed up José Jeunechamps.

Mansoni and Bernier, via a deflected shot after added time, allowed the Steelworkers to sign a second success in a row, four days after the victory in Mechelen, which had not happened to them for almost ten months.

This good dynamic gives the group a smile, well aware that they will have to raise their level still further to have a chance to shine on Saturday afternoon against the Bruges monster. “It also allowed us to give certain players playing time and show them that everyone should be concerned.”

As expected, José Jeunechamps established Simon Elisor at the forefront of the attack. The Frenchman wanted to take advantage of this trip to a National 1 team to regain confidence and unlock his counter in Belgium. In vain. However, he created a great opportunity at the start of the game, but his shot was deflected for a corner by an opposing defender.

Vagner on loan from Metz

In addition to his qualification, Seraing endorsed the arrival of José Dias Goncalves Vagner, or Vagner for friends. This Cape Verdean right winger, also capable of playing as a striker, proved to Nancy by planting 14 goals in 37 outings. Transferred to Saint-Étienne, he did not confirm before receiving a new chance in Metz. Author of six goals, he was loaned last season to Sion, accumulating only 57 short minutes of play in three appearances.
