Ghana attacker Joseph Paintsil has been named in the EA Sports FIFA Team of the Week.
The 24-year old former Tema Youth SC registered two assists when his team Genk came from behind to defeat rivals Club Brugge 3-1 in the Belgian top-flight league last weekend.
He set up Carlos Cuesta’s goal in the 25th minute to get Genk the leveller after after going down through Hans Vanaken’s goal in the 21st minute.
The Black Stars winger stepped up to assist forward Paul Onuachu’s goal in the 67th minute to put Genk up 2-1 before Bryan Heynen put the game to bed with a goal in the 81st minute.
The Ghana international has made his way to the EA Sports FIFA 23 Team of the Week following his remarkable performance.
Paintsil has delivered six goals and also provided eight assists in 16 appearances this season for Genk.
