Ghanaian superteen Eugene Ansah feels extremely delighted after justifying his quality with a classy finish for Lokeren who posted a comfortable 3-0 win over KV Oostende in the Belgian top-flight on Boxing Day.
Lokeren had their two leading strikers missing the game through injury and family commitment and the mantle fell on the Ghanaian to marshal the strikeforce.
Head coach Peters Maes put the relatively inexperienced Ansah upfront with three attacking midfielder offering support from behind and on the 27th minute, the former Liberty Professionals made his impact, stealing the ball from Ooostende defender Luissint and racing to round up the keeper in a Ronaldo-fashion.
The former Liberty Professionals youth team player explains it was a great moment for especially when he had to carry the mantle with Tunisian Harbaoui and Remacle missing in action.
“It is really a massive blessing for me to score under this circumstance. Because both of our top strikers missed the game with injury and other commitment and I had to fill in,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
I felt such a great joy in me because it is Christmas and the last game of the first round and I had this big opportunity. I rang my [mother and uncle] and told them I was going to score and I did score a wonderful goal. I’m very happy.”
Ansah’s goal is a goal of the week contender.
