17 August 2015, 08:43

Abuja - Super Eagles forward Emmanuel Emenike got a brace that helped his new club, Al Ain, lift the Arabian Gulf Super Cup with a 4-2 win over Al Nasr at the Mohammad bin Zayed Stadium on Saturday August 15, 2015.   

The Nigeria international, Emenike who played at the FIFA 2014 World Cup hit the back of the net within the first three minute and then completed a brace later in the match; the energetic striker benefited from a move that was initiated by Omar Abdul Rahman who released a cross from the right, a touch well directed by Lee Myung Jaoo to Brazilian midfielder Fellipe Bastos who fed an unmarked Emenike to finish up nicely then he got his second from a goal mouth scramble.
