David Accam scored a double for Helsingborg IF

Ghana forward David Accam scored a double for Helsingborg IF in their 5-1 victory over Syrianska FC in the Svenska Cupen on Sunday afternoon.

The 23-year-old scored in first-half added-time before grabbing his brace in the 71st minute with a fabulous strike from just outside of the area.

Accam has netted four times since the start of the season (all four goals in the cup competition) and his effort in the 5-1 victory has helped Helsingborg to establish a 5 point lead at the top of Group 3 table.

Ema Boateng dropped to the bench and came on in the second-half of the game.

    May be this Accam guy could be the option for Waris-Gyan combination. He is young 23 years and not known much. He could be the revelation. He has never stopped scoring since he joined Helsinborg IF. He too should be given the chance to proof himself. Keep this performance up may be very soon you may get a call up!

    He is an attacking midfielder but has mostly been used as a trequartista by the Helsingborg manager. However I think Ghanaians gotta lower their expectations on this chap cuz he’s only an up and coming youngster playing in the Swedish Allsvenskan not even the Dutch Eredivisie, Portuguese League, Belgian Jupiler League or the Swiss Super League. The above listed leagues are much more stronger and competitive than the Swedish Allsvenskan, we shouldn’t expect too much from this chap for now cuz he’s still a raw talent and still developing. It remains to be seen if he can replicate this form when he gets the chance to don the national colours.

    This boy is a genius and we need to give him a chance to prove himself. I watched him in Malmo play against Malmo FC last season and he did veri well. Talking abt de Swedish league, it has produced a lot of great players including Zlatan, and our own Majeed waris! I think David ACCAM is ready for top flight football and he shd be given de chance
