Ghanaian midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah scored for FK Spartaks Jurmala in their Latvian Higher League victory over BFC Daugavpils.

Spartaks won 2-1 at home thanks to Asamoah's winning goal.

The midfielder was given a starting spot and performed admirably, scoring the game-winning goal in the 89th minute.

Leo Gaucho broke the deadlock of the match just eight minutes after kickoff, giving the hosts an early advantage. Later in the first half, Valerijs Afanasvejs equalised for the away team.

With the game destined to end in a draw Asamoah fired home, securing all three points for Spartaks.

He joined the Latvian club in 2020 from Ghana Premier League club Bechem United.
