Ghana's Afcon defenders shine



John Boye and Jerry Akaminko were the unlikely source of goals amongst Ghana's foreign legion this weekend as supersport.com sums up their performances.

Italy

Juventus coach described Kwadwo Asamoah as like "a fish out of water" against Roma, but he got into the team's groove quickly and was started at home.

Asamoah played all game except for the final thirteen minutes, when he was subbed. Juventus won and opened the gap atop the Srie A to seven points more than their nearest rivals, Napoli.

The Derby della Madonnina was on Sunday and again, the Ghana duo were integral in the 1-1 score. Sulley Muntari played all game and was cautioned for a hard tackle. On the other hand, Kevin-Prince Boateng played his trequartista role with aplomb for 81 minutes before being subbed.

Inside Africa

In the PSL, national under 23 player Edwin Gyimah played all game and won, together with Supersport United, against Moroka Swallows in the Nedbank Cup. It went to penalties and he scored in the 5-3 victory (0-0 after fulltime).

Up north in Tunisia, Harrison Afful, back from the Afcon, played for Esperance in their 4-1 win against Olympique de Kef.

France

Gallic action saw a rare goal for John Boye, who took his Afcon form back into the Ligue 1. He played the whole game in Rennes' draw.

In Le Classique, Andre Ayew was integral in Marseille's play but still lost. Goals from PSG's Zlatan added to Marseille's own goal from Nicolas N’Koulou to finish the game at the Parc des Princes. Jordan Ayew did not play.

Elsewhere, Rabiu Mohammed was on for 86 minutes for Evian in their loss to Montpellier.

England

In the Championship, Albert Adomah played for just 15 minutes in a high-scoring game - his Bristol City won 5-3 against Barnsley.

Turkey

Another rare goal came for Jerry Akaminko following a powerful header. "...it feels great to score, more than anything in the game. I don’t why it feels like that," he said after the game. The goal came after 52 minutes to help Eskisehispor draw 2-2 with Istanbul BB.
