Published on: 24 November 2021

Ghanaian prodigy Herbert Ansah was on target on two occasions for Torino in a 1-3 away victory in Bergamo against Atalanta in matchday 8 of the Italian  Campionato Nazionale U18 division.

Ansah got the nod to start against Atalanta after his match-winning goal at home to Hellas Verona last week. This was his first start of the season.

The 17-year-old forward broke the deadlock in the 13th minute after leaving his opponent in the dust and outsmarting the Torino goalkeeper to prod the ball into the net.

His second goal was a beautiful piece of art as he hit a long shot over the Atalanta goalkeeper into the post from about 25 yards in the 33rd minute to give Torino a cushion.

The visitors reacted in the 42nd minute with a consolation goal from striker Endri Muhameti.

Herbert Ansah has an attacking contribution of three goals in four matches, making him the second-highest scorer for Torino in the U18 division.

The Turin club are second in the table with 18 points after eight matches.
