Black Stars returnee David Accam highlighted his superior scoring form by netting a brace for Helsingborg IF in their 2-1 victory over Mjallby in the Swedish top-tier league on Friday evening.
After seeing his side fall behind at the Strandvallen in Solvesborg, the gifted attacker who can play across various positions in attack shouldered the challenge and cancelled the lead four minutes before half-time.
Helsingborg, who had Ema Boateng – Accam’s Right to Dream Academy mate, in action, pressed to take establish a lead but the host staged a fight.
However, a moment of brilliance inspired by the 23-year-old Accam won them the maximum points. Boateng laced well into a sequence initiated by Pálsson and chipped an inviting ball for Accam who raced to hammer home a patent finish to register his 11th league goal of the season.
Boateng was substituted in the 73rd minute while Accam played full throttle.
Accam has been drafted into the Ghana squad for the 2015 AFCON qualifier against Uganda next month.
