Boakye-Yiadom who was introduced to the game in the 62nd minute had to wait till the 90th minute to bag the goal that sealed the victory for Belgrade.

Semedo’s first half strike shot Olympiacos in the lead but Vulic drew parity with a thumping header in the 58th minute.

Speaking after the game, an excited Boakye-Yiadom expressed gratitude to his teammates and God for the goal as well as the team’s victory.

‘I’m happy and I thank God for giving me the first goal in the Champions League. Its amazing and great feeling to head the ball and watch it enter the net. All credit go to the almighty God. Without him there is no Boakye-Yiadom so I’m really grateful. I also want to thank Ghanaians for their prayers”, he said.
