Paintsil scored the first goal of the game in 15 minutes. He timed his run to perfection and applied an excellent finishing touch to the move. He was on the pitch for just the first 35 minutes.
The goal is his fourth of the campaign in just eight games so far.
Paintsil was unfortunately ignored from the Black Stars squad for the friendlies against Brazil and Nicaragua but may have a chance to get a late call-up with some games left in club level.
