Ghana winger Opoku Ampomah endures defeat on Bundesliga debut for Dusseldorf

Ghana international winger Nana Opoku Ampomah marked his debut in the German Bundesliga with a home defeat to Freiburg on Sunday.

The 23-year-old came off the bench to replace Polish forward Dawid Kownacki on the 76th minute mark at the Merkur Spiel-Arena as visiting Freiburg nicked a 2-1 victory.

Opoku joined Dusseldorf from Belgian side Waasland-Beveren in the summer but his debut was prolonged by an injury he suffered during a DFB Pokal Cup game against Villigen.

He was given just 14 minutes of normal time to try and turn the game round for Dusseldorf but his performance was’t enough as they failed to stage a comeback.

Attacker Bernard Tekpetey came off the bench to also play in the game while defender Kasim Nuhu and former Right to Dream Academy graduate Kelvin Ofori were unused.
