Black Stars midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu got on the score-sheet for Udinese in their 3-2 home reverse to ten-man Lazio in the Italian Serie A on Sunday afternoon.
The 24-year-old Liverpool-target was handed a starting role in midfield by Les Zebrette manager Francesco Guidolin and he proved his worth with a strike in the 68th minute.
Udinese had taken the lead through an Antonio Di Natale first-half penalty but the visitors levelled through Candreva but Badu restored their lead with a trademark finish.
However, the under-performers of the season failed to protect their lead as Lazzari conceded an own-goal before Brazilian Hernanes came off the bench to snatch the match-winner for Lazio.
“It’s good to score for my club though we lost,” he told GHANASoccernet.com.
