Super Eagles’ midfielder, John Ogochukwu Ogu has hailed his team’s hard fought Israeli Cup win on Saturday, AOIFootball.com reports.
Be’er Sheva had to rely on a Dia Saba 120th minute goal to overcome Beitar Tel Aviv at home to progress to the Round of 16 of the competition.
Ogu, who was on for the entire 120 minutes, posted afterwards that he was happy despite the narrow escape.
“To next round. Tuesday game is next,” Ogu said.
Hapoel will now focus their attention to Tuesday’s crunch tie away at Maccabi Tel Haviv as they continue their steady rise up on the league table.
