Akpoguma shows class in Cologne defeat
Hoffenheim ace Kevin akpoguma

Super Eagles ace Kevin Akpoguma enjoyed lavish victory with his Hoffenheim teammates on Friday in the German Bundesliga.

Hosts Hoffenheim  to visiting FC Cologne to the cleaners thanks to a 5-0 demolition. Centre back Akpoguma was impressive and stood his ground all through the duration of the match.

Togo’s Ihlas Bebou who grabbed a brace in the encounter opened the floodgate in the 31st minute of the match and grabbed his second goal in the 49th minute with his teammates scoring three other goals afterwards.

Akpoguma did not only cover his wing effectively but also provided the cross that saw Bebou grab the curtain raiser.

Cologne’s task was made a whole lot harder soon after the restart.

Christoph Baumgartner fashioned an opening for Kevin Akpoguma to pick out a cross. He did just that, whipping a telling ball into the danger zone for Bebou to flick in his second of the contest.

Baumgartner was on the receiving end of a David Raum cross to add a third barely 120 seconds later. Substitute Georgino Rutter set up Dennis Geiger for Hoffenheim’s fourth with 16 minutes remaining.

The crossbar denied Kramaric a piece of the goal-scoring pie, before Stefan Posch added the gloss to a one-sided victory that takes Hoffenheim to within a point of Cologne in the top half.
