Levante forward Raphael Dwamena happy with opening day victory against Betis

Ghana striker Raphael Dwamena has expressed satisfaction on his debut performance for Levante in the 3-0 win over Real Betis in the La Liga opener.

Dwamena left a big impression on his debut in the Spanish top-flight on Friday as the late substitute set up the final goal in Levante's 3-0 hammering of Real Betis.

Dwamena came on the match in the 90th minute but had enough time to squeeze in a pass for two-goal hero Morales to score his second goal of the night.

The attacker came on in the 90th minute for Jason and laid the pass for Morales to give them the emphatic 3-0 away from home in the first league match of the season.

He posted," Nice way to start the season.#TeamWork. We thank God."

His performance in the short period of time has sparked hopes that he would be a key player for Levante when he fully settles.

It was Dwamena's first game since joining them two weeks ago from Switzerland.

Jose Luis Morales scored twice as Levante won 3-0 at Real Betis in the opening round of the Spanish league on Friday.

Levante's 4-4-2 formation worked to clinical effect as his strike partner Roger Marti gave Levante the lead close to halftime, tapping in after right midfielder Jason cut through the Betis defense.

Morales doubled the lead in the 54th minute, eluding four defenders before beating goalkeeper Pau Lopez with a fine finish, and then sealed the win five minutes into injury time following a Levante counterattack and the pass from Dwamena.
