Ghana defender Baba Abdul Rahman set up two late goals for Augsburg who staged a late comeback but fell 3-2 against giants Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Friday. 

The Ghanaian left-back tooks to have hit the need form ahead of his arrival this weekend for the Black Stars matches against Uganda and Togo.

Rahman delivered two excellent crosses to provide assists for both of Augsburg's goals, in a great offensive outing for the left-back.

Marco Reus (11 mins) and Sokratis (14) in the opening phase of the game at the SGL-Arena and a further strike from Ramos on 78 minutes put Dortmund in a commanding 3-0 lead but Augsburg pulled two goals back in the last eight minutes of the game.

As the clock ticked down, it all started happening.

First, Bobadilla latched onto the end of good work by Baba to make it 2-1 on 82 minutes before the 2013 Ghana U20 FIFA World Cup defender set up another goal on the 90th minute mark.

The former Asante Kotoko full-back, 21, has started both games for Augsburg in the Bundesliga since joining them from second-tier side Greuther Furth.

He has been named in the Ghana squad for the 2015 AFCON qualifying double-header against Uganda and Togo.
