Ghanaian-born Australian Yeboah hits brace in Western Sydney’s home defeat


Ghanaian-born Australian attacker Kwame Yeboah netted a brace for Western Sydney Wanderers against Melbourne City on Friday evening.

The Ghanaian striker scored just 120 seconds into the game to give the home side a deserving lead after a blistering start to the match.

The home team could have added to their tally in the first half but for the brilliance of the away team goalkeeper to deny the home side a second before the break.

Jamie Maclaren converted a 56th minute penalty to pull parity for the away side to make it 1 – 1.

Joshua Brillante scored in the 73rd minutes to put the away team ahead for the first time in the game with Jamie Maclaren providing the assist.

25-year-old Yeboah leveled it for his side 10 minutes to full time to bring the score to 2-2.

It looked all set for a draw only for the man of the match Maclaren to pop up inside 90th minutes to score the winner for the away team.

The game ended 2-3 to Melbourne City despite a brace from the brilliant Ghanaian attacker.
