Emotional Noa Lang dedicates goal to deceased grandmother and gets yellow

Noa Lang scored the third goal for Club Brugge against Beerschot (3-0) on Sunday, but had to pay for it with an emotional yellow card. He took off his shirt to show a message for his recently deceased grandmother, โ€œI love you grandmother, RIP.โ€

โ€œ My grandmother died the day before yesterday. Its very difficult for me, because I couldnt go to my mother. But luckily, we won, and I was able to score for her. That is the most importantโ€, says the former Ajacied against Het Nieuwsblad.

Club won Beerschot quite easily. โ€œWithout playing bigโ€, realizes Lang. โ€œI didnt play a big game myself. In the first ten minutes after rest, we feared the same scenario as against STVV. But it was all right.โ€

Against Beerschot it took a quarter of an hour before Bas Dost extended the ball from a cross of Charles De Ketelaere along goalkeeper Mike Vanhamel to the goal. Four minutes later it was already 0-2 by a hit from Odilon Kossounou. Long made it 0-3 in the 82nd minute.

Club Brugge leads in the Pro League with 7 points ahead of Racing Genk, which lost 2-0 on Saturday at Excelsior Mouscron.
