Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu scored his debut goal for loan club Bursaspor in the Turkish Super Lig on Saturday.
The Green Crocodiles ensured they got off to a good start in their first home game of the new season by edging Alanyaspor 3-2.
The Ghanaian midfielder fired his side in the lead on 38 minutes.
Badu’s influence continued to tell on the game when his well-laid pass into the path of an attacker resulted into a penalty for Bursaspor. Italian Pablo Martin Battala then stepped up and converted to make it 2-0 just a minute before the break.
Alanyaspor, who had fellow Ghanaian midfielder Isaac Sackey also playing full throttle just like Badu, staged a comeback and pulled level in a space of five minutes through Mbilla Etame and Vagner Love.
But Bursaspor managed to snatch the winner courtesy a 90th minute Dzon Delarge finish.
