Ghanaian forward Emmanuel Boateng scored his first goal of the Major League Soccer in America on Saturday evening against FC Cincinnati.
The 27-year-old versatile forward played more than half an hour of the game before he was subbed off in the second half after scoring a goal and setting up another in his team’s victory at home.
Tajon Buchanan scored very early in the game as his 7th minutes strike gave the home team a comfortable and a perfect start to the match.
On the 20th minute mark, Buchanan set up the Ghanaian inside the center of the box whose left footed strike found the back of the net to make it 2-0 to the home team.
Twelve minutes later, Boateng picked out Adam Buksa inside the goal area who finished superbly to make it 3-0 to the hosts two minutes after the half hour mark.
Brenner da Silva grabbed a consolation goal for the visitors after 55 minutes but Buksa netted his second goal of the match to make the final score a resounding 4-1 win to New England.
The Ghanaian forward has one goal and three assists in the Major League Soccer in America this year for the New England Revolution FC.
