Ghanaian midfielder Samuel Asamoah was back in action over the weekend for Sint-Truiden after serving a one-match suspension.

Asamoah missed the previous game, a 2-0 win over Zulte Waregem due to a red card.

But he returned to help Sint-Truiden record a famous win against Standard Liege in the Belgian Pro League on Saturday.

Asamoah lasted for 64 minutes as he was replaced by defensive midfielder Mory Konaté in a tactical substitution after Sint-Truiden were reduced to 10 men in the 53rd minute.

At the time, they were leading two-nil thanks to first-half goals by Duckens Nazon and Yuma Suzuki. Standard Liege breached Truiden's defence once as the game ended 2-1.

Asamoah, 26, has made 16 league appearances for Sint-Truiden this season.
