Ghana forward Caleb Ekuban netted for Trabzonspor as they hammered Altay 4-1 in the Round of 16 of the Turkish Cup on Thursday.

Ekuban scored his first goal for the club after returning from a two-month injury.

Daniel Sturridge opened the scoring for Trabzonspor in the 51st minutes with a sleek finish.

Ekuban doubled their advantage five minutes later with a clinical strike before feeding Sturridge with beautiful pass to make it 3-0 in the 63rd minute.

Portuguese midfielder Ivanildo Fernandes made it 4-0 in the 71st minute before Altay grabbed a consolation through Marco Paixao in the 83rd minute.

Trabzonspor won the match with a 6-1 aggregate scoreline after winning the first leg 2-1 a fortnight ago.
