The Ghanaian teen played 63 mintues before his place was taken by Miles Leaburn with just a little over 25 minutes left to play.

The visitors scored after the 70th minute mark to reduce the deficit to two with less than 20 minutes to the end of the match.

The home team then scored two late goals through Charlie Kirk and Leaburn to make the final score 5-1.

Ghana’s first choice goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott was in goal for Charlton as they thrashed their opponents.
