Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris got off to a flying start in his Spartak Moscow career by scoring all two goals in their 2-1 friendly win over Romanian side Otelu on Friday evening in Spain.
The 21-year-old former Swedish Allsvenskan golden shoe winner opened the scoring for Spartak in first-half stoppage-time and doubled their lead ten minutes after the break.
Waris employed his incredible pace to race through the Romanians defence and connect with a team-mate before rifling a powerful shot to the far post.
He advertised his quick alertness in attack when he capitalised on a defensive hawler to round up the Otelu goalkeeper to score the match winner in the 55th minute.
“I’m very happy to score on my debut for the club and I hope to keep up like this because this is I have been brought here and I know things will continue this way if I continue working hard,” he said.
He was replaced just after the hour mark.
Spartak Moscow are in Spain for a training programme and will play two more friendly games before returning to Russia for the resumption of the Russian Premier League next month.
