Frank Acheampong hits brace for Anderlecht in Europa League
Ghana winger Frank Acheampong grabbed a brace for Anderlecht in their UEFA Europa League clash with Russian side Zenith St Petersburg in their round of 32 clash.
The 24-year-old raced the Royal Club into a 5th minute lead before doubling the advantage 26 minutes later at the Stade Constant Vandent Stock.
The winger’s opener resulted from his quick reaction to dead-ball situation as he pounced on a loose ball to finish home.
The second arrived through a counter-attack as he combined with his teammate Bruno who centered for him to smash home a sensational volley.
Acheampong is the only Ghanaian player who started the game as youngster Emmanuel Adjei-Sowah was left on the bench while French-born Dennis Appiah missed out of the squad.
Acheampong played 4 out of 6 games for Ghana at the AFCON starting three of time.
