5 Ghanaian players who excelled over the weekend

Over the weekend, several Ghanaian players across the continent put in performances that will be worthy of a place in coach Kwesi Appiah's 23-man for AFCON 2019.

Here are the top five who excelled this weekend:

Ebenezer Ofori

Ghanaian midfielder Ebenezer Ofori opened his account for New York City FC in the 2-2 draw with Orlando City.

The 23-year-old midfielder scored in the 12-minute mark with a spectacular drive just outside the box to give New York City FC the lead.

John Antwi

Ghana international forward John Antwi over the weekend put in a scintillating performance as he aided his club Misr Makkasa to defeat El Entag El Harby in the Egyptian League.

Antwi scored the third goal for his side in their 3-1 away win over El Entag El Harby.

The former Dreams FC player has now bagged 8 goals in 19 matches this season.

Andy Yiadom

Andy Yiadom played the full 90 minutes for Reading in the 2-1 away over Ipswich. He has registered 33 appearances for Reading while scoring a solitary goal.

William Owusu Acheampong

The 29-year-old scored his seventh goal of the season for Royal Antwerp against KAS Eupen in the Belgium League over the weekend.

Daniel Darkwah

The left-back got his debut for Kotoko over the weekend in the CAF Confederation Cup. He deputised for the suspended captain Amos Frimpong and he won the admiration of the fans with his superb performance. He wiped in a dangerous cross which resulted in the Porcupines second goal for the day. His output yesterday made a strong case for the left-back slot for the senior national team.
