Ghana international striker Caleb Ekuban netted and assisted a goal for Trabzonspor in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday evening at the Generali Arena.

The 25-year-old pulled one back for the Turkish Super Lig side with a fine strike in the 84th minute after Czech Republican Sparta had taken a 2-0 lead.

The 2019 AFCON Ghana forward unleashed a first-time shot from inside the box and beat the goalkeeper into the bottom right corner to halve the deficit for his side.

Former Ghana U17 forward Benjamin Tetteh started upfront for Sparta Prague in the game but he was booked on the 55th minute mark and replaced 10 minutes before the end of the game.

Ekuban then assisted Norwegian Alexander Sorloth to level the scoring for the visitors.

Ekuban missed Ghana’s penalty kick at the continental showpiece that resulted in the Black Stars’s exit from the tournament.
