Bartholomew Ogbeche has continued his impressive scoring streak this season after hitting the target as Willem II cruised to the semi-final of the KNVB Cup.

Simon Gustafson handed Roda JC the lead via the penalty spot in the 37th minute before the Nigerian levelled matters two minutes later.

In the 48th minute, Roda JC regained their lead courtesy Donis Avdijaj but Konstantinos Tsimikas' equaliser ensured that the game went into extra-time. 

And with scores staying at 2-2 after 120 minutes, an impressive shootout ensued as the first nine were kicks converted until Tsiy-William Ndenge missed his effort.

Before then, Ogbeche had made no mistake with his conversion sending the Tilburg supporters into ecstasy.

The one-time Super Eagles wonderkid had scored eight times in nine appearances for  Erwin van de Looi’s side and extended his tally to the Dutch national football cup competition with his strike against the Miners in Tilburg.

Ogbeche now has nine goals for Willem II this term (eight goals in the Dutch topflight). In fact, he scored in five successive games between November 18 to December 13, 2017 which included a treble (VVVenlo) and a brace (against Heracles).

Willem II continue their battle against relegation from Eredivisie when they face Sparta Rotterdam on Sunday. They are placed 14th with 17 points from 20 games.
