Captain Nana Asare scored the only goal of the game for FC Utrecht

By Akyereko Frimpong Manson

Versatile Ghanaian winger Nana Akwasi Asare scored the only goal of the game for FC Utrecht as they narrowly defeated Groningen 1-0 in the Dutch Eredivisie on Friday. 

The 26-year-old carried Jan Wouters’ side on his shoulders, scoring the solitary goal of the game in the 58th minute at the Stadion Galgenwaard.

The former KV Mechelen player coolly connected home an Alexander Gerndt long weighted cross from the right from inside the box.

Utrecht have moved temporarily to fourth place as Ajax and Feyenoord are set to play on Saturday.

Asare who skippered Utrecht was replaced on the 80th minute mark.

    what really has this guy done wrong? for over 5yrs this guy has been peerless at the left back position.

  8. Jack says:

    if you don’t pay, they wld not call you and the guy is not ready to any money to anyone before serving his country

    Captain Nana Asare might be left back but he plays for Utrecht as a Central or Defensive midfielder or as a winger.
    This is the type of player we need he’s more valuable than Badu and Derek to be honest
