Ghana attacker David Accam says he has not scored a goal better his sensational finish for Helsingborg IF in their 2-0 victory over Malmo FF in a semi-final tie on Thursday afternoon. 

The 23-year-old cemented victory for Helsingborg IF and jetted them to the finals with a memorable fashion.

“I think it is the best goal I have scored in my career. I thank God for it,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

Accam smartly took a pass from a team-mate in the Helsingborg half and bombed away with a lightening speed with five Malmo FF defenders trying to tail him down.

But the attacker escaped successfully. Dazzling two of the defenders, outpacing the two and out-muscling the last man before hitting a powerful, intelligent neat ball in between the legs of Robin Olsen – the Malmo.

The celebration that came with it was party-like. The fans went crazy in the stands and the Helsingborg bench popped out of the dug-out to celebrate the goal in disbelief.

It has been a successful early season for the former Arsenal-target as he has bagged 10 goals in 12 games (all competitions) and the top scorer in the whole of Sweden.
