Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Hendrick Ekstein bagged a brace on debut for his club Sabah who compete in the Azerbaijani Premier League.

Ekstein left Chiefs in April after failing to agree terms on a new deal and subsequently it was revealed he had signed a lucrative two-year contract with the outfit from Masazir.

Nonetheless, he has made a positive start to his career in that country after scoring twice in a pre-season friendly clash against Zire FC last Saturday.

The brace proved important in the final reckoning as his side eventually prevailed 5-3 on the day.

The player will no doubt hope to build on his two goals ahead of the 2019/20 season in the nation located in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia.
