Ghanaian pair Ema Twumasi and Francis Atuahene made their debut for Austin Bold FC in their 1-1 draw against Tacoma Defiance in the USL Championship on Sunday.

Atuahene replaced Sonny Guadarrama in the second half of the game.

Midfielder Twumasi entered the pitch on 73 minutes and replaced former Nigeria U-20 captain Isaac Promise.

Austin Bold FC took the lead through Brazilian striker Kleber in the 61st minute.

Defiance defender Aleks Berkolds couldn't properly clear a Lima header. His poor clearance landed to Kleber at the top of the box, who's powerful shot deflected off Berkolds and into the back of the net.

Dhillon broke the deadlock in the 37th minute from a set piece header. Joel Rydstrand's corner kick found the striker as he peeled off his mark to redirect the ball past Bold goalkeeper Diego Restrepo.
