German-born Ghanaian attacker Anton Donkor a masterpiece of a finish for Everton U23 to inspire them to a 4-2 win over Arsenal U23 on Monday night in the English Premier League’s Reserves League.
The 19-year-old climbed off the bench to replace Nathan Broadhead just before the resumption of play from the interval and drew his side side level after Marcus McGuane had opened the scoring for the Young Gunners.
Donkor, who returned to Everton for a second loan spell Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, has struggled to make first team appearances at the Goodison nonetheless is claiming his name with the U23 side.
Everton manager David Unsworth made two changes to his side at the interval, replacing Charsley and Broadhead with Bassala Sambou and Anton Donkor, and the changes paid off immediately.
Just minutes into the second half, the former set the latter away down the left of the box and the German-born Ghanaian calmly slotted the ball into the far corner for his first goal of the campaign.
Donkor was born to a Ghanaian father and a German mother in Göttingen.
He has represented Germany at U18 and U20 levels.
Defender Osei-Tutu Jordi played the entire game for Arsenal but his compatriot Edward Nketiah was not part of the Arsenal squad for the game.
