German-born Ghanaian forward Ragnar Ache scored for Germany’s Olympic Team in their 3-2 win over Saudi Arabia’s Olympic Team in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on Sunday afternoon.
Ache, 22, struck the European superpowers into a 2-1 lead after the Middle East side had levelled a Nadiem Amiri 11th minute goal.
The goal becomes his second goal of the competition after he came off the bench to head a consolation goal against Brazil in the group opener on Thursday.
The Eintracht Frankfurt bullish forward’s initial close range effort was saved by the legs of Alrubaie but he could only divert the ball back into the path of Ache. The former Sparta Rotterdam man reacted quickest to slam home the rebound and restored Germany’s lead just before the break.
Germany went ahead to claim victory in a game that saw back-and-forth actions from the two sides in the game.
He was born to Ghanaian parents in German but started his career in the Netherlands where he spent several seasons with Sparta Rotterdam.
He is still eligible to represent Ghana despite playing for Germany at the youth level.
