Ghanaian forward William Owusu scored the consolation goal for FC Antwerp who succumbed to a 2-1 defeat against OH Leuven in the Belgian second-tier league. 

The former Gil Vicente attacker levelled the scoring for Antwerp in the 80th minute after Jovan Kostovski had raced the visitors into the lead at the Bosuilstadion in Deurne.

But lack concentration costed Antwerp as Leuven hit the back of the net 6 minutes after his strike to restore their lead and send the host crashing to their first defeat of the new season.

Owusu, 24, joined Antwerp on a season’s contract after failing to secure action last season following his exit from Westerlo and looks on course to recapturing his form as he has scored only in his second game for the club.
