English-born Ghanaian teenage midfield sensation Jesuran Rak-Sakyi was on target and also provided an assist for Crystal Palace in their hard-fought 3-2 win over Arsenal in the English U18 Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Rak-Sakyi, 18, who was handed a starting berth by manager Patrick Mccarthy got his name on the scoresheet when he struck after just two minutes into the game to put Palace ahead at the Crystal Palace Academy.
Arsenal despite going down in the early minutes of the game fought hard to grab the leveler through James Sweet in the 14th minute but James Omilabu scored in the 30-minute mark to give Crystal Palace a 2-1 lead.
In the 42nd minute, Kido Taylor-Hart expertly hit the back of the net to restore parity for the young Gunners but James Omilabu emerged as the hero as he scored his second goal after 77minutes into the game with assist from Jesuran Rak-Sakyi to seal a deserving 3-2 victory for the host.
The Ghanaian international who lasted the full duration of the game has so far this season played nine games, scoring one goal with one assist to his credit.
Crystal Palace currently lead the English U18 Premier League South standings with 27 points after playing twelve matches.
