Dutch-born Ghanaian attacker Elvis Manu continues to prove his worth in the Dutch Eredivisie as he scored his third goal in four games for Cambuur when they smuggled a point from Heracles Almelo after drawing 1-1. 

The 20-year-old has displayed impressive bravado in attack for Cambuur since arriving on loan from giants Feyenoord before the commencement of the second round of the league.

Manu is gradually lifting Cambuur from the jaws of relegation since his arrival and on Sunday afternoon at the Polman Stadion, the powerful attacker left a mark about his quality and demonstrated why he merits a place in the Feyenoord team.

The left-footed playmaker run through the host defence with a measure of efficiency before firing past Remko Pasveer (the Heracles keeper) for the opening goal in the 23rd minute.

After Heracles levelled the scoring, Manu should have sealed the points for Cambuur but after weaving into the Heracles area, the winger could only shoot into the side netting.

Just in five games for Cambuur, Manu has netted three times and assisted two other goals to help his side.
