Boakye-Yiadom hits double to help Sassuolo maintain Serie B lead

Published on: 24 November 2012

Ghana striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom scored in the second week running after grabbing a brace for Sassuolo in their 3-1 win over Reggina in the Italian Serie B on Saturday.

Sassuolo were looking to bounce back onto winning ways after failing to snatch victory at Brescia and the 19-year-old Boakye gave them a perfect start when he scored in the 18th minute to put them ahead.

Fabio Ceravolo cancelled out Boakye's opener for Reggina six minutes later but Gennaro Troianiello restored the lead for the Green and Blacks at the Stadio Alberto Braglia.

Boakye-Yiadom then killed off any potential fight-back from the visitors by scoring three minutes after the break to finish the game 3-1.

The on-loan Juventus striker has taken his Serie B tally to six goals in twelve games.

Compatriot Yussif Raman Chibsah was replaced after 73 minutes.

    @GH FUO,THINK BIG!Affum and clottey are not blackstars material.if Akwasi Appiah will be fair and select players with pure class then,Abeyie,jordan,Boakye yiadom and Gyan are the players to lead the striking force of Ghana.Warris has been scoring for hacken this season but the swedish league is inferior to the seria B,ligue 1 and the super league,though is better than the UAE league.the above mentioned strikers are matured and experience than warris.he's a future prospect but for now,he has alot to do to improve his game.in my view,he's still ordinally player.

    HAVE U DONE UR RESEARCH ON AFFUM IN THE EGYPTIAN LEAGUE LAST SEASON AND IN THE PRE SEASON THIS YR? CLOTTEY PRETTY MUCH CARRIED BEREKUM CHELSEA ON HIS BACK THRU OUT THE CHAMPS LEAGUE AND WAS THE HIGHEST GOAL POACHER IN THE TOURNAMNT IF IM NOT MISTAKEN. AND YET U SAY THESE 2 ARE NOT GBSTAR MATERIAL FOR AN AFRICAN TOURNAMNT? U ARE A FOOL.... ABEYIE IS A VETERAN AND HAS MORE CLASS AND EXPERIENCE. JORDAN WENT TO AFCON 2012 AND HE DIDNT SCORE A GOAL NOR GET AN ASSIST. THAT WAS LESS THAN A YR AGO. HAS HE IMPRESSED U THAT MUCH SINCE AFCON 2012?

    AFFUM , CLOTTEY, YIADOM, GYAN. THESE R THE STRIKERS WE NEED FOR AFCON 2013. ITALIAN SERIE B IS MORE COMPETITIVE THAN SWEDISH LEAGUE, IM TELLING YOU. YIADOM SHOULD LIFT METAL. ADD BULK AND STRENGTH TO HIS UPPER BODY AND LEGS. HE WILL BE THE NEXT ADEBAYOR IN NO TIME, TRUST ME

    The future craddle of GH football.Take it or leave it,this guy deserves to lead our attack rather than bellyfull & stomach direction strikers who only pride themselves in scoring in mediocre leagues.Scoring against catanasio defence in Serie B is better than those watermelon and amateur leagues filled with Imams and sheicks disguised as footballers.

    Kudos RBY, 6 goals in 12 games its an impressive record. That's an average of a goal in every 2 games, now what you have to do is to help Sassuolo gain promotion to the SERIE A @ the end of the season then after that you help maintain your top-flight status. If you're able to achieve all of all these then I don't see why Juventus wont recall you back, keep the fire burning boy. You'll surely make the final cut for AFCON 2013.
