Afriyie Acquah dedicates goal against Sassuolo to his mother

Empoli midfielder Afriyie Acquah has dedicated his goal against Sassuolo to his mom, Ama Kwaadu who watched him dazzle against on Sunday.

The midfielder was in top form for the Azzuris, scoring his side's second goal in the 3-0 victory over Sassuolo.

Acquah posted on Twitter dedicating the goal to his mum,"My goal dedicated to my mom Ama Kwaadu. She watched me today at the Stadio Carlo Castellani; that’s special!!."

The 27-year-old doubled Empoli's lead before halftime after Rade Krunic had opened the scoring on 34 minutes.

Acquah received a fine pass from Diego Farias and showed brilliant composure inside the box to bury the ball into the bottom left corner.

Diego Farias sealed the win with a fantastic solo effort in the second half.

The victory takes Empoli three points above the relegation zone.
