Black Stars midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu stole a point for Udinese with a last-gasp strike as they held Hellas Verona to a 2-2 draw in the Italian Serie A on Saturday evening. 

The powerful midfielder has scored twice on a row and taken his season’s tally to 5 goals in 27 games.

Verona were heading for a 2-1 win at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi until the Ghana international climbed off the bench to power a home a sensational low-volley to peck the scoring and earn a point for his side.

A strike in each halve from Luca Toni and Iceland international Emil Hallfreðsson gave the host a comfortable 2-0 lead but Antonio Di Natale halved the scoring with a powerful finish in the 56th minute and Badu settled the scores with a 92nd minute bullet.

The 23-year-old found himself some space inside the box to get on the end of a pass from Andrea Lazzari and he sent the ball into the bottom left corner with a trademarkk precision to break the hearts of the home fans.

  4. Paul says:

    They are all scoring recently k. Asamoah, atsu, rabiu, dede, gyan, warris, badu and co. We pray they exibit this form at the world cup.

  5. papa nkrumah says:

    wow! maybe it is time to consider agyemang badu as defensive midfielder to free up essien as annan and rabiu have lost form lately.

  6. Johnny says:

    Badu is great at defensive midfield, and as a bonus, he is a goalscorer. I would like to see how he combines with Acquah shielding our defense.

  7. 21guns says:

    The good thing is Ghana have a lot of great midfielders who can score at any time with ease,

    Ghana will beat both usa and Portugal mark my words

  8. Kwabena says:

    Looking at the energy and the power this guy brings into the game it would have been good for Ghana if this Guy is paired with rabiu in front of the back Four but this Guy is tactically indiscipline and that is a worry.
