Atsu shines on Champions League debut for Porto

Christian Atsu was impressive for FC Porto

Ghana winger Christian Atsu came off the bench to set up the second goal for FC Porto in their 2-0 victory at Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb. 


The 20-year-old replaced Silvestre Varela in the 77th minute and he weaved his magic to set up Steven Defour for the second goal in the 92nd minute. 


Atsu, playing first ever UEFA Champions League match, broke on the left before sliding the ball across to the unmarked Defour. 


The Belgian international took a touch before lifting the ball over the sprawling Ivan Kelava and into the roof of the net.


Atsu has been in splendid shape for Porto since returning from a successful loan spell at Portuguese side Rio Ave.
