Hapoel Beer Sheva’s Nigerian shot stopper Austin Ejide conceded six goals against Nosa Igiebor's Maccabi Tel Aviv who completed a unique treble with a stunning 6-2 victory in Wednesday night’s State FA Cup game.
The Nigerian international who had kept 12 clean sheets in the League was beaten four times by Tel Aviv’s Swedish forward Rade Prica while goals from Yoav Ziv and Eran Zahavi completed the rout.The Nigerian only last weekend also conceded four goals to make it 10 goals in two games in four days.
Igiebor who watched from the stands due to suspension was instrumental to his side’s brilliant performances this season.
Maccabi Tel Aviv had earlier retained the Premier League championship for the third consecutive season after defeating Ironi Kiryat Shmona 2-1 on Sunday which preceded their Toto Cup triumph earlier in the campaign.
For Ogu and Ejide the defeat means their search for club silverware continues next season.
