Ghana striker Raphael Dwamena bagged his first goal of the season for Real Zaragoza in their 3-0 win over Alcorcón.
Dwamena had drawn blanks in Zaragoza’s first three games of the season against Tenerife, Ponferradina and Elche despite starting all three games.
However his linkup play up front with new signing Shinji Kagawa and Luiz Suarez has proved invaluable to the side.
Dwamena finally got his reward in the 12th minute of the game against Alcorcón with a lovely dinked finish after being put through on goal.
Luiz Suarez Suarez and Carlos Vigaray also scored for Zaragoza in a comfortable win for the away side.
Zaragoza are now second on the table having not lost any of their four games this season and trail Cadiz by just two points.
Dwamena’s brilliant form over pre-season had cemented his place as the first choice striker for Zaragoza.
The forward scored 11 goals over the course of four games in preseason.
He secured a season-long loan move to Zaragoza from Levante and, having quickly become a fan favourite, he’s on his way to becoming a cult hero.
The player will hope his start for his new side is a sign that he is ready to turn the corner after a disappointing year.
The Black Stars striker earned rave reviews at FC Zurich, scoring 13 times and assisting 12 more in his final season for the Swiss club.
This fine form seemed to have earned him a move to Premier League club Brighton who wee willing to shelve out £10 million for the striker but the deal fell through after he failed a medical.
He moved instead to Levante where he struggled to find his best form, being relegated to 16 appearances in all competitions, scoring just one goal.
Dwamena has also made eight appearances for the Black Stars, scoring two goals but did not make it into the squad for the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
He will hope that an impressive season with his new side will put him back in contention for a spot in the national side.
