Bournemouth star Afobe dedicates goal to Ehiogu

The DR Congo international was forced off after sustaining an injury in an aerial duel with Vincent Kompany

Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe paid tribute to Ugo Ehiogu after scoring against Middlesbrough on Saturday.

Ibrahimovic ruled out for season

Afobe pulled off the black armband that all players were wearing and pointed to the sky in honour of the former Tottenham defender, who passed away on Friday.

Prior to the match, both sides participated in a minute's silence to remember the former England defender. 

Afobe's 16th minute strike was the second of four goals for the home side, who easily defeated Boro 4-0 at the Vitality Stadium.
