Ghana youth striker Ebenezer Assifuah was on hand once more for FC Sion as he struck the only goal of the game for them in their 1-0 narrow triumph over FC Zurich in the Swiss Super League on Tuesday night. 

Despite FC Zurich dominating possession and creating avalanche of chances, it was Sion who did the necessary thing by scoring with their first real chance of the game in the 52nd minute through the 20-year-old Ghanaian striker.

Cypriot international Dimitris Christofi who had climbed off the bench before the restart at the Stade de Tourbillon made lightworks of two Zurich defenders, forcing his way through and pushing a pass for Assifuah who made no mistake in burying the ball beyond Yanick Brecher for his second goal on a row.

Sion's consistent results in the league has seen them rise above Aarau and totally clear of relegation with four games left to draw down the curtains on the season.

Winger Ishmael Yartey was unused and warmed the bench for the entire duration of the game.

Assifuah's goal has taken his season's tally to 5 in 10 games for Sion so far in the season.

    @Assisi you're totally wrong buddy, it will be suicidal to trim down the numbers of defenders & midfielders to accommodate for six strikers especially in midfield where our strength lies. Apart from Gyan who has scored lotta goals for us over the past few yrs you'll realize that most of our goals have also come from the midfielders, Muntari for instance is the second highest scorer in this current BS generation with 20 goals. There are only 4 slots for the striking department and base on current form I will choose Gyan, Waris, RBY & Jordan. The likes of Assifuah, Accam & Affum can be put on standby. Dont forget Schlupp can also play as a striker when the need arises.

    There is no point taking six strikers,mind you,this is Ghana,our midfield can also chip in goals,the midfield has always been our strongest assets,we use that to our advantage,I think the coach should rather find a system that accommodates our best midfielders,four strikers at the world cup is enough for me.

    True,have you seen Yussif Chibsah play? Sassuolo, I like the guy,I think he is good certainly not a finish article yet but looks promising and one to watch out for.Then there is Mohammed Abu who plays with Kwarasey,another one to watch out for.

    Our strikers for Brazil are: Gyan, Richmond Boakye Yiadom, Waris, Accam, Assifuah, and Jordan Ayew. We may need to trim the amount of defenders and midfielders to accommodate for six strikers.

    Our strikers for Brazil should be six: Gyan, Boakye Yiadom, Waris, Assifuah, Accam, and Jordan. Six midfielders, six defenders, and three goalkeepers

    Massa,your time go come,Brazil is probably too early,there will definitely be some restructuring to the team after the world cup,the Muntaris,Essiens,KBPs have to decide whether to help the 2015 course or we bring in the new young fresh midfielders.
