The Moroccan’s second-half strike at the Mandemakers Stadium ended his run of seven games without a goal for his new team
Oussama Tannane scored his first SBV Vitesse goal in Sunday’s 2-1 league victory at RKC Waalwijk.

Tannane converted a 77th-minute penalty to hand Leonid Slutsky’s men their second away victory this season.

Mali international Nouha Dicko powered the visitors ahead after 17 minutes, but Fred Grim's men equalised through Clint Leemans in the 53rd minute – with Julian Lelieveld getting his marching orders for serious foul play.

Despite the visitors being at a numerical disadvantage, they secured maximum points through the Morocco international.

After completing his loan spell at Utrecht, Tannane signed a three-year contract with the Slutsky’s side in July 2019, but the winger had to wait for seven games to open his goal account.

Also, the goal ended his run of nine months without a goal in the Netherlands’ elite division, dating back to his strike on December 16, 2018, against Heerenveen.

Following this victory, Vitesse are sixth in the log with seven points after four games, while Waalwijk who are winless, so far are placed 16th with just one point.

The 25-year-old Tannane will be hoping to get a goal when his team host Utrecht in their next fixture on October 5.
