Emmanuel Emenike Open Domestic Goal Account For Olympiakos With Brace Against Asteras Tripolis


Former Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Emenike scored twice for Greek side Olympiakos in their 2-1 win over Asteras Tripolis in the Greek League Cup in what was his first start since joining the team.


The former who had a loan spell at English Premier League side West Ham last season netted his first goal via the spot in the 71st minute, before grabbing his brace seven minutes later.

Injury has slowed down the power playing 30 year old who wasted no time in proving his worth to the club with a goal in the UEFA Champions League Qualifiers on his debut for the team against Partizan Belgrade.

He has been out of action for three weeks due to an injury , and only returned to the team last weekend in their league game against Asteras Tripoli , same team he scored a brace against tonight .

Emenike who retired from international football with Nigeria in 2015 was sold by Turkish side Fenerbahce to Olympiakos in a deal which reportedly cost the Greek side €2.5m as transfer fee.
