Ghana’s in-form midfielder Mubarak Wakaso scored and set up another as Espanyol levelled with the last kick of the game to draw 3-3 at home to Valencia in La Liga on Saturday.

Three goals of the match came in a frantic final seven minutes at Cornella-El Prat with the Ghanaian once again gaining huge praise for his performance.

Espanyol had led through Wakaso who powered home his header on the stroke of halftime before his header set up Verdu for his club to lead 2-1.

Sergio Canales grabbed the first equaliser in the 53rd before Wakaso set up Verdu.

Jonas fired in from the edge of the area from Roberto Soldado’s knock down to make it 2-2 in the 87th-minute and Spain striker Soldado then lifted the ball over Kiko Casilla for what looked like the decider in the 91st.

Espanyol striker Sergio Garcia muscled his way past Victor Ruiz to shoot high into the net in the 94th minute, after Valencia looked to have snatched all three points with two quick goals at the end.
