Ghana attacker David Accam highlighted his imperious scoring form by grabbing the consolation goal for Helsingborg IF in their 2-1 away reverse against AIK Solna in the Swedish Allsvenskan on Monday evening. 

The 23-year-old slammed home a trademark powerful strike 20 minutes from time to restore parity for Helsingborg but the host resisted, persevered and laboured to victory at the Friends Arena.

Accam's impressive scoring run which has seen him bagged 9 goals in his last 10 games was evident on the evening as he constantly probed the host defence for an opening until he finally found the net in the 70th minute.

With Manchester United and other top European scouts on the attendance, Accam grabbed his goal in flamboyant style as he laced through the back of the defence and finished off with a touch of brilliance to increase his league tally to 5 goals.

With Helsingborg playing at a man's disadvantage after the 20th minute sending off of defender Carl Johansson, AIK were favoured by their numerical superiority and they took advantage of that to score three minutes from time to snatch victory.

While Accam was stealing the show with his magical scoring prowess, 2013 Ghana U20 World Cup defender Ebenezer Ofori was also in defence for the host as he played until the 79th minute.

Former New Edubiase United captain Ibrahim Moro was unused but Swedish-born Robin Quaison lasted the entire during of the game for AIK.

Ema Boateng could not make the trip with Helsingborg because of a back injury.

    Accam is right footed and I dont see why he is not an option on the right instead of Adoma

    @Emmalot, you are a disgrace to Nigeria for bringing useless players to A GHANAIAN website. If this was seen in zamfoot or sudan on superport it would have been accepted Foooooolll

    ENYEAMA LILLE - Best African goalie at the moment MIKEL CHELSEA - Still having a lower player status in Chelsea after all these years MOSES LIVERPOOL - Surplus to requirements. He is a fool for going to sit on Liverpool bench whiles he could be a better player in West Ham EMENIKE FERNERBACHE - A starwars striker UCHE VILLAREAL - The best over the bar African player at the moment. Villareal is a relegated club so Uche is a waste to Nigeria ECHIEJILE MONACO - Monaco are planning on sending him on loan to buy a better fullback OBASI SCHALE 04 - What!!!!!! this guy has rotted. hahahahaha Anthony Annan is better OMERUO MIDDLESBROUGH - The never to be Chelsea defender ONAZI LAZIO - Great defender OLAITAN OLIMPIACOS - up and coming OSAZE STROKE CITY - too known to be used AMEOBI NEWCASTLE - good player but no strenght ANICHEBE WEST BROM - waste IDEYE DYNAMO KIEV - I love this guy. He has sense HARUNA DYNAMO KIEV - Lukman was far more promising in the 2007 u 17 but is a flop ALSO GUYS LIKE OBOABONA MUSA( CSKA MOSCOW) - star guy UCHEBO AND HOME STARS LIKE UZOENYI AND ODUNLAMI - good players who might no enter the light TEAM NIGERIA ALL THE WAY - I fear for the worse

    The only player I'd take out of that lot is the left back Echiejille but he struggles to get a game at Monaco.

    We have a player like richmond boakye yiadom is playing with the top top players like ronaldo, messi, iniesta, xavi,pepe, bale and the rest in the Spanish la liga. AA must utilize this chap very well because of the experience gain at the Spanish league . AA we want players who are playing in a better league

    @ Kuukuphilly I can see you have a good future but you can't make it by watching pornographic movies. See how you have spewed rubbish all over as if a child that has peed on himself. Maybe you are a gay or you are some of those who yearn to slip your tongue into ladies panties and butts. Please seek counselling and you would be okay.I will always remember you in prayers. yours ever Chu
