Tarique Fosu strikes against Sunderland in England

England-born Ghanaian attacker Tarique Fosu scored an early minute goal to deny Sunderland victory in the English League One on Saturday.

The 23-year-old hit the opener on the 14th-minute mark at the Stadium of Light for Oxford United but the Black Cats struck in the opening minutes of the second half to peck the scoring.

a loose pass was picked off by Woodburn who moved it quickly for Fosu in behind the trailing home defence. Keeper Jon McLaughlin came to meet him but the former Charlton man kept his head and clipped a delightful finish over the prone custodian for a memorable debut goal.

Fosu is a former player of Reading but switched to Fleetwood, Accrington Stanley, Colchester City, before moving to Charlton Athletic.

He has opened his goal account of the season for Oxford United.
