Ghana midfielder Rabiu Mohammed made his second debut for Anzhi Makhackala in the Russian top flight as they beat Ural 1-0 on Saturday.
The 28 year old midfielder who resigned for the club after almost two years out with an injury saw the entire duration of the game but picked a booking in the 52nd minute.
Paul Viorel Anton scored the only goal of the game for Anzhi Makhackala as they started the season with victory on the first day.
As usual, the Ghanaian international was impressive in the heart of midfield as he outclassed his markers in the league opener.
Raubil Mohammed would be hoping to restore his incredible form in the Russian League in his request to return to the Black Stars team ahead of the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
