Ghanaian youth midfielder Isaac Nana Asare was on the Atletico Madrid substitute bench when they left it worryingly late to come from behind and beat Sant Andreu 2-1 to reach the next round of the Copa Del Rey competition on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old former Ghana U20 central midfielder earned a place in Diego Simeone’s first team squad after consistently impressing with the club’s second string side in the Segunda B Division.

With the experience of Spanish midfielder Carlos Ramos, French youngster Josuha Guilavogui and former FC Porto midfielder Gabriel Rodríguez, Asare could not have his chance in the game especially when the host were pressured by the Segunda B side and had to fight from a goal down.

It was no time for the Argentine gaffer to give chances to young players from the second team and as a result, Asare could not have his chance.

After signing for the Atletico Madrid B from Rayo Vallecano in August, Asare seeks to have impressed manager Diego Simeone and could gatecrash his squad.

He becomes the second Ghanaian youngster to have a chance in Atletico Madrid’s first team squad under one year after Thomas Partey warmed their bench in early 2013 in a La Liga game.

Asare is among five Ghanaian youngster at the club – Thomas Teye Partey, Ishmael Antwi, former Medeama SC defender Otuo Acheampong and Benjamin Akoto Asamoah.
