Hapoel Be’er Sheva were too much to handle for Maccabi Netanya in today’s Israeli league game as they smashed five goal past the home side to pick up a 5-1 win.
Nigerian striker Anthony Nwakaeme who last scored in February scored a brace with the first coming from the spot in the 62nd minute before his second goal two minutes later to put his team 4-1 up. Ben Sahar scored his second of the game with fifteen minutes left to complete the rout .
Nwakaeme last scored in Be’er Sheva 3-0 win over Maccabi Petah Tikva on the 17th of February, and his brace in today’s game took his tally for the season to nine goals . A far cry from his last season tally of 14 although he has played 8 games less.
The power playing forward was voted the best player in the Israeli league last season and that earned him a call up to the senior national team of Nigeria, but he was snubbed by coach Gernot Rohr in their last round of friendly games against Poland and Serbia respectively.
