In Saturday’s 5-2 win over Eupen, Durkin scored in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time to firmly seal the three points. The landmark moment arrived on Durkin’s 20th birthday, as he entered as a 70th-minute substitute for his eighth appearance with Sint-Truidense. He’s enjoyed a larger role since December, and has helped Sint-Truidense to 10th in the Belgian Pro League.
