Published on: 13 August 2019

Ghanaian youngster Eddie Opoku was adjudged Man of the Match after scoring in Birmingham Legion FC's 1-0 win over Tampa Bay Rowdies in the USL.

Birmingham Legion broke the deadlock through Opoku's superb left-footed finish from a tight angle that beat Robinson into the roof of the net.

The 23-year-old was a joy to watch as he tested Macklin Robinson with a high shot at his near post in the 28th minute and the Tampa Bay goalkeeper did well to deny Brian Wright on a breakaway 11 minutes later.

He put up an incredible performance, completing all four of his dribbles, making four key passes and scoring the game-winning goal for Legion FC at Al Lang Stadium.

He was replaced in the 93rd minute of the game by Gael Mabiala.
