Raphael Dwamena seals victory for FC Zurich

Ghana forward Raphael Dwamena came off the bench to score for FC Zurich in their 3-1 win over FC St. Gallen in the Swiss top-flight league.

Zurich got off to a flying start at the AFG Arena when Victor Palsson shot them into the lead in the 7th minute before Swiss youngster Adrian Winter doubled their advantage five minutes later.

Roman Buess halved the deficit on the stroke of half-time with a powerful shot from the edge of the box to his St. Gallen hope ahead of the second half.

But Dwamena, who replaced Nigerian attacker Stephen Odey in the 67th minute, dashed the hopes of the home side as he sealed the win for Der Stadtclub in the 82nd minute.

The strike was the 21-year-old's second in the league for FC Zurich this season.

The win propelled FC Zurich to 3rd on the standings with 28 points after 17 games.
