Ghana winger Samuel Owusu provided an assist for Al-Ahli Saudi’s goal on Friday afternoon when the team suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Al-Qadisiyah.
The diminutive attacker earned a starting role today when his team visited the Prince Saud bin Jalawi Stadium to face off with the matchday 12 opponent of the ongoing 2020/2021 Saudi Pro League season.
Unfortunately for his team, they were overpowered by a determined Al-Qadisiyah side that fought for the maximum points.
On the matchday, goals from Danilo Asprilla and Hamad Al Yami handed the home team a 2-goal lead at the end of the first half.
Although Al Ahli came in strong after the break, Al-Qadisiyah stayed compact at the back before going on to equalize again in the 76th minute through a strike from Hassan Al-Amri.
With the game heading towards a humiliating defeat, Samuel Owusu displayed an impressive performance in the final minutes of the game.
The Black Stars asset in the 88th minute assisted Abdulrahman Ghareeb to score a consolation goal for Al-Ahli with the game eventually ending 3-1 in favour of the hosts.
