German-born Ghanaian starlet Erich Berko grabbed his first goal of the season after scoring for Stuttgart II in their 2-0 win over Saarbrücken in the German third-tier league. 

The 18-year-old was introduced in the 73rd minute and he made the points safe with a powerful strike in the third minute of second-half stoppage-time.

Stuttgart were gunning for their first win of the season after picking a single point from their opening three game and they took the league in the 19th minute with a strike from Marco Grüttner before Berko wrapped up the win with a prolific late finish.

Berko, born to Ghanaian immigrants in Germany, has been with Stuttgart since 2006 and could break into the Stuttgart first team squad if he maintains his impressive form.
