Ghana goalkeeper Daniel Agyei was handed a rude welcome to South African football by conceding FOUR goals on his debut for Free State Stars.
The Black Stars goalkeeper joined Ea Lla Koto last month from Ghana Premier League club Liberty Professionals.
The 23-year-old’s honeymoon period in South Africa was however short lived after his side had taken an early lead against Matsatsantsa.
Mongezi Bobe had put Ea Lla Koto ahead in the 10th minute but defender Soriola Gege would be sent off later in the half, allowing SuperSport to take control.
Mame Niang equalised from the spot just before the break while Bennett Chenene struck four minutes after the interval.
Sameehg Doutie came off the bench to make the result safe with six minutes to go but there was still enough time for Niang to net his second goal of the night.
It wasn’t the dream debut the Ghana international was looking for but would take solace in the fact that he played the full game under difficult circumstances as his side played almost 50 minutes of the game with a man down.
