Kljestan scores first goal of the season in Anderlecht win

The USA midfielder scored the opening goal of Anderlecht's triumph over Gent, helping the club to its second consecutive victory.
USA midfielder Sacha Kljestan opened his scoring account for the 2013-14 season Sunday, tallying the opening goal in Anderlecht's 4-1 victory over Gent in Brussels.

Kljestan's 32nd-minute goal was followed soon after by a Dennis Praet strike to help Anderlecht seize control of the game early en route to its second victory in a row after opening the Belgian Jupiler League campaign with a surprise home loss to Lokeren.

Kljestan, who has started all three of Anderlecht's league games thus far in addition to the club's Super Cup triumph last month, is coming off a season in which he tallied four times in all competitions. He has won consecutive Belgian league titles with Anderlecht, and he signed a contract extension with the club in February that lasts through the 2015-16 season.
