Ghana international Daniel-Kofi Kyereh scored his first competitive goal for new club SC Freiburg in a 2-1 win over Mainz O5 in the 2022/23 German Bundesliga on Saturday.
The summer signing’s goal comes after an impressive outing with the Black Stars during the September break.
Freiburg, looking to snap a winless run after recording back-to-back goalless draws before the international break, sprinted to a 2-0 half-time lead at Stade Europa-Park.
It took them just three minutes to find a breakthrough – Ritsu Doan dummied a Maximilian Eggestein ball into the box, giving Michael Gregoritsch the space to smash in the opening goal.
Kyereh made it 2-0 on 37 minutes after forward Gregoritsch flicked a beautifully disguised Vincenzo Grifo cross onto the bar, and the rebound fell kindly for the 26-year-old midfielder to tap in from close range.
Visiting Mainz dominated the second half but could only halve the deficit through Aarón Martin Caricol in the 52nd minute.
