Kevin Prince Boateng excited to score for Sassuolo on competitive debut

Ghana forward Kevin Prince Boateng has expressed excitement after scoring on his competitive debut for Italian side Sassuolo as they thrashed Ternana 5-1 in the Coppa Italia.

The former A.C Milan player has been outstanding since joining the club, scoring lots of goals in preseason. He began his competitive campaign by scoring the opener in the 5-1 mauling of the lower tier side.

His compatriot Alfred Duncan was also on the score sheet 20 minutes after Boateng had scored.

Boateng, 31, posted on social media how important the goal was for him adding he was happy to score on the day.

"Important 1st win and happy about my goal!!! Let’s go sasol,' he tweeted.

The Ghana International joined the Italians in the summer transfer window from German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt, where he had a stellar campaign by winning the DFB Pokal.

He signed a three year deal with the green and Blacks, and he is expected to use his experience to help the team finish in a good position.
