Emmanuel Boateng happy with first goal of the season

Black Stars striker Emmanuel Boateng has expressed his delight after ending his season's goal drought by scoring for Levante in the Spanish La Liga on Saturday.

The Ghanaian international came off the bench to salvage a point for his side in their 2-2 draw with SD Huesca at the Estadio El Alcoraz.

The league newcomers opened the scoring in the 23rd minute through Christian Rivera who fired into the bottom left corner after latching onto a precise pass in the box.

Levante responded on the stroke of time when Marti Roger drew them level with an excellent finish.

Huesca, however, regained control in the 51st minute when Xabier Etxeita peeled off his marker to head home to make it 2-1.

Just as the game looked to be slipping away from Levante, coach Paco Lopez called upon Boateng from the bench in the 70th minute of the game.

Four minutes later, the 21-year-old attacker repaid the faith shown in him by coach as he hit the equalizer to ensure both sides shared the spoils.

The goal was Boateng's first in 10 matches for Levante UD since the start of the season.

After the game he posted on Twitter: "There’s No Victory Without A Battle ????????+1???? Thank God for my first goal ????????Oluwa Dey"
