Former Nigeria under-23 striker Ibezito Ogbonna was hospitalized after his house in Ashdod,  Israel, was hit by a rocket fired from Gaza last week.


The 38-year-old, who won the Israeli Cup with Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2006 and 2007, was at home with his wife and two young daughters when the building was hit by a rocket.


His wife and children were unharmed but Ibezito was injured.


Footage from the scene shows Ibezito Ogbonna being taken to the hospital after his apartment was hit by a rocket.

He was in the hospital for a few hours where he was treated and had different tests done before being released.

His apartment was also destroyed and with no home to return to, Ogbonna, who has Israeli citizenship, and his family, are now staying at a hotel.
