Abuja - Retired Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Emenike was amongst the scorers as Al-Ain destroyed Al-Ahli 3-0 in a UAE Arabian Gulf League match at the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium.
The on-loan Fenerbahce forward struck in the 76th minute to make it 3-0 for Zlatko Dalic's side in the home match played on Saturday.
Fillipe Bastos and Mohammed Abdulrahman had given Al-Ain a commanding 2-0 lead at half time before the former Spartak Moscow star capped a brilliant individual performance with a goal of his own fourteen minutes from time.
Emenike has now taken his goalscoring tally to five in seven games since making a sensational move from Fenerbahce to Al-Ain on a season-long loan.

Meanwhile, Odion Ighalo helped Watford move back into the top half of the Premier League table as his club saw off Norwich City 2-0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
A first half of few chances was brought to life on 30 minutes when Ighalo's powerful run into the box was unfairly halted by Alexander Tetty, with Troy Deeney making no mistake in converting the resulting penalty, becoming the first Watford player to score in four consecutive Premier League games.
Ighalo saw a header disallowed for offside just before half-time, before squandering a number of second-half chances as Norwich tried to hold on.
But he was eventually rewarded for his sparkling performance in stoppage time, bursting through a ragged visiting defence to coolly slot home.
A sixth win of the season for Quique Sanchez Flores's men sees them climb to ninth, with the form of strike partners Deeney and Ighalo sure to boost their increasingly strong hopes for survival.
