Former Super Eagles striker Bartholomew Ogbeche is still going strong at the age of 38.


Ogbeche, a member of the Super Eagles squad to the World Cup twenty years ago, netted his eighth and ninth goals of the season as Hyderabad FC registered a 3-0 road win over Bengaluru FC at Sree Kanteerava Stadium.


The former PSG wonderkid ended his goal drought in the Indian Super League in some style, driving home a shot from distance into the bottom corner after a cleverly worked free-kick in the 26th minute. 


In the 44th minute, Ogbeche extended Hyderabad's lead as he headed home via a deflection. The goal has been credited to him for now. 


Elsewhere, onetime Inter Milan trialist Emmanuel Apeh took his tally to eight goals in all competitions as Sabah FK hammered 
Sumgayit PFC 6-0 in the Azerbaijan Premier League. 


The number 99 broke the deadlock inside three minutes after a defence-splitting pass from a teammate. 


Signed from Spanish side CD Tenerife in the summer, Apeh's standout performance this season has to be the hat-trick he scored against Qaradağ Lökbatan FK in the Azerbaycan Kuboku exactly a month ago. 


Lanre Kehinde has scored his first goal in Hapoel Nof HaGalil colours after joining the club on a free transfer this month.


In what was his third appearance for Hapoel Nof HaGalil in the Liga Leumit, the center forward converted a spot kick in the 63rd minute of a 2-0 win over Maccabi Petah Tikva.
