Parma youngster Afriyie Acquah justified why he deserved a late call-up for Ghana’s Nations Cup qualifier against Malawi by scoring the only goal in the 1-0 win.
The 20-year-old replaced injured Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu at the last minute and was handed a starting role.
The on-loan Parma workaholic midfielder formed a nice partnership with Anthony Annan to eclipse the Flames.
After four minutes, he sneaked behind the defenders to turn home Andre Ayew’s goal bound shot at the Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday afternoon.
He was making his second appearance for the Black Stars since his debut in February in a friendly against Chile.
Acquah can earn a place in Ghana’s squad for the Nations Cup finals in South Africa from January 19 to February 10.
