Anthony Nwakaeme scores in Trabzonspor’s comeback win


Nigerian striker Anthony Nwakaeme was on target as Trabzonspor came from a goal down to beat Akhisar Belediyespor 2 – 1 in the Turkish Super Lig on Saturday as they continue to pile pressure on the top of the league and a place in Europe next season.

The former Hapoel Be’er Sheva forward scored the team’s equalizer in the 70th minute before midfielder Jose Sosa completed the comeback from the penalty spot in the 76th minute after the visitors had taken the lead in the 65th minute through Jeremy Bokila.

Nwakaeme has so far scored three goals in his last two matches getting a brace a week ago in an away draw at Kasimpasa.

Trabzonspor who also pays the wages of Nigerian international Ogenyi Onazi currently sits 4th on the league table, a point behind 3rd placed Besiktas but 17 points adrift of table-toppers Istanbul Basaksehir.
