Dutch-born Ghanaian teenager Brian Brobbey Griffins hit the back of the net for Ajax Amsterdam U19 in their 3-3 draw with Benfica U19 in the UEFA Youth League on Wednesday afternoon.
The 16-year-old pecked the scoring for his side with a clinical finish on the 45th minute mark.
Benfica took the lead through Nuno Santos who converted a 13th minute a spot kick. But, the Ghanaian led the charge for the visiting club with a impressive athleticism and predatory instincts. He constantly charged forward and tormented the hosts defence.
Noa Lang laid a pass through inside the box and the Ghanaian raced into the box to side-foot the ball past the hosts keeper.
The goal is his first goal in the competition.
He was born to Ghanaian parents in the Netherlands and has represented the European giants at U17 level.
He is related to Hertha Berlin defender Derrick Luckassen and Almere City attacker Kevin Luckassen.
