Solomon Asante shakes off Black Stars snub with 12th goal of the season

Free-scoring Ghanaian forward Solomon Asante pocketed his 12th of the campaign to aid Phoenix Rising FC into a landslide 4-0 win over San Antonio in the United Soccer League(USL).

The reincarnated attacker extended his rich vein of form with his fifth goal in the last three matches to take his overall tally to 12 goals and 6 assists in a season worthy of remembering.

The USL’s most creative player shook off his blackout from the national team handlers with another strike for Phoenix Rising in the one-sided game at the Phoenix Soccer Stadium in the United States.

Solomon Asante traded the deafening Lumumbashi stadium in DR Congo for pastures anew in the USL and has since taken his goal-scoring prowess to another level.

Solomon Asante now trails the golden boot leader by just 2 goals despite playing most of his games as an attacking midfielder.

Christopher Carlos opened the scoring for Phoenix Rising FC, 18 minutes into the game before Solomon Asante doubled the lead 9 minutes after the opener.

Kevin Bigga and Billi Forbes added colour and emphasis to the scoreline in the 4-0 massacre.
