Ghana defender Harrison Afful grabs double for Esperance; dedicates to wife and baby girl
Ghana defender Harrison Afful has hit top form before Ghana’s double 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers after scoring a brace for Esperance in their 3-1 win at Bizertin in the Tunisian Ligue 1 on Sunday.
The versatile player scored the pair of goals in four minutes to put the game beyond the host team.
Bizertin took the lead on 28 minutes through Zoubeir Darraji but Esperance bounced back with the leveller through Iheb M’barki.
Afful then found the back of the net in the 70th and 74th minutes respectively.
“ I am very excited because things have been rough for the club. The two goals I will like to dedicate to my wife and our newly born baby girl,” Afful told GHANASoccernet.com.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup star will arrive in Ghana on Tuesday to join the Black Stars for Saturday’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Uganda in Kumasi.
