VIDEO: Solomon Asante scores 13th goal in Phoenix Rising win over Rio Grande
Ghana winger, Solomon Asante scored the winning goal for Phoenix Rising who claimed a slender 1-0 win over Rio Grande on Wednesday evening.
The former TP Mazembe star has now scored 13 league goals in 26 games for Rising who are battling for a ticket to play in the Major League Soccer next season.
The 26-year-old missed Rising’s 4-0 battering of Colorado Spring in the team’s last fixture in August after sustaining a slight injury but he returned to take charge of affairs as he picked the leadership role, wearing the armband and scoring the decisive winner with a 61st-minute strike.
Grande had managed to hold the hosts’ defence for the opening half of the game with Asante being held in tight check but they could not resist the talisman who struck home the winner to put his team join the top of the USL table.
His outstanding consistency has caused many to question why he has not returned into the Ghana national team squad.
