The Tunisian side were a whisker away from securing a share of the spoils with the Turkish champions, but for the late intervention of the 21-year-old

Henry Onyekuru's late strike helped Galatasaray defeat Club Africain 1-0 in Saturday's pre-season encounter.

The Everton loanee took a spot on the sidelines after earning his first start for the Turkish champions in their 3-0 victory over Sakaryaspor on Wednesday.

With the final whistle imminent, Onyekuru was on hand to poke home a rebound from close range to seal a second consecutive victory for Fatih Terim's side.

The Nigeria forward has now scored twice in four games for Galatasaray since completing a season-long loan, hoping to banish unpleasant memories of last season at Anderlecht.
