Former Super Eagles striker, Joseph Akpala, was on target for his Belgian top flight club Oostende who thrashed another Belgian club Svelta Melsele 8-0 in a pre-season friendly game on Friday.
Akpala scored in the 85th minute to make it 6-0 for Oostende.
A hat-trick from Yassine El Ghanassy, a goal each from Emmanuel Banda, Brecht Capon, Ibrahim Bah and an own goal from a Svelta Melsele player gave Oostende the win.
Oostende will take on Belgian club Mandel United in another friendly on Saturday.
