Afriyie Acquah scores for Empoli against his former club Torino
Ghana midfielder Afriyie Acquah scored for Empoli as they hammered his former side, Torino, on Sunday. The win was crucial as his club Empoli battled to avoid relegation from the Italian top-flight.
The Black Stars player scored from the edge of the box after a mistake by Napoli's Nigerian defender Ola Aina sparking hopes of survival hopes for Empoli.
The Ghanaian managed to place the ball past goalkeeper Sirigu with a well-placed shot that opened the scoring the match.
Acquah wore Toro's jersey for two seasons (2015/16 and 2016/17). That was before he nearly moved to the English Premier League last season.
The 29-year-old midfielder moved to Empoli and this season he has made 26 appearances.
This is his second goal of the season.
