Afriyie Acquah scores classy goal in Torino training match

Torino midfielder Afriyie Acquah grabbed the headlines once again after scoring a classy goal in a training match in pre-season on Friday.

Acquah collected a pass, teed himself up with a lovely first touch, and powerfully struck a curly one into the roof of the net.

The goalkeeper was left hapless between the sticks as the ball flew past him like a missile.

Acquah had already scored a spectacular free-kick and bagged a brace in the 14-0 win lower division side Bormiese.

The Ghana international is preparing for his fourth season with the Turin-based side and has recently been linked with a move to Empoli.

Last season, he made 22 Serie A appearances and scored one goal scored.

He has previously played Palermo, Sampdoria and Parma in the Italian Serie A.

Last summer, the 26-year-old had his future speculated but the much-reported move to English Championship side Birmingham City collapsed.
