Video: Acheampong Messi grabs a brace in Thai top-flight
Ghanaian striker Frank Acheampong scored twice for Buriram United who defeated Chainat 3-0 in the Thai Premier League on Saturday at the New I-Mobile Stadium.
The former Berekum Chelsea talented midfielder in the 30th and 82nd minute marks as his club cruised to an emphatic triumph with ten men.
Acheampong, a former Ghana Under-20 winger, raced into the box to connect home a low cross from a team-mate to double Buriram’s advantage.
Chainat warmed themselves into the game and tried to at least pull a goal back but Acheampong dashed their remaining hopes with eight minutes left to go.
The 19-year-old then latched onto a long range pass from a team-mate to round up the goalkeeper before slotting into the empty net.
Buriram occupy third position with 21 points from nine games.
