Yeboah shines in Europa Lge

Striker Samuel Yeboah handed his Israeli side Hapoel Tel-Aviv top spot in the Uefa Europa League Group C after his solitary goal at the Bloomfield Stadium on Thurday night denied Hamburg.

Yeboah broke the deadlock on 23 minutes but it was the imagination and precision of Gil Vermouth which was instrumental in Hapoel's 13th goal of the group stage.

The diminutive midfielder picked up what seemed like a harmless ball inside Hamburg's half before delivering a pinpoint diagonal pass which carved the German defence open.

Yeboah, who had earlier forced Wolfgang Hesl to save for a corner, ghosted into the area and squeezed his shot under the advancing goalkeeper.

Hapoel Tel Aviv will now enter Friday's round of 32 draw with spirits high as one of the seeded sides.
