Video: Ghana striker Prince Tagoe scores his first goal in Turkey

Published on: 26 October 2011

Ghana striker Prince Tagoe slammed his first goal in his first start for Turkish club Bursaspor when they drew 1-1 with second-placed Orduspor on Wednesday.

The Black Stars attacker reminded fans of his predatory instinct when he scored in the away league game.

A beautiful header from the Ghanaian player put his side in thew lead until the home side drew level on the stroke of full time.

Tagoe headed home the opener just before half-time but his goal was cancelled out late in the game.

He was substituted after the hour mark to boost the defence of the club but they could not stop the high flying Orduspor from getting the late goal.

Prior to Wednesday night's game, the former Partizan Belgrade striker’s previous appearances for Bursaspor have all come as a substitute in six league matches.

Tagoe joined Bursaspor at the start of the season from Hoffenheim after spending a highly successful loan spell with Partizan where he won the league and Cup double.

With his performance, Tagoe is now expected to get his first start in the league in the next game as he moves closer to his mission of settling in at the club by the end of the year.

Bursaspor are in mid-table with a third of the season gone in the League.

There was a minute silence for those killed in the  recent earthquake in Turkey before the start of the game.

    I really do share the sentiments of my bros. We need to look elsewhere to solve the striking problem. We shd encourage Ransford Osei and get Ahmed Toure into our fold. I think Ransford is better than Adiyiah but I can understand that for a striker, his stature seems a little unfavourable to the European teams. Adiyiah and the Prince have had their chances and blown it, let's encourage others whiles we keep praying for them.

    Why are we wasting our time to talk about this flop and the other one Adiyah, when even in turkey they are benched. if the country is serious about tackling its striking problem. its the likes of Jo Ayew, Afriyie Acquah, tyems that we should be thinking of and not these flops wo still get call up to the stars. Is the GFA, management and the technical teams serious at all?

    Tagoe is not a good player. Adiyiah is good but could be use as a winger instead of a striker. I'm not impress with Tagoe at all.

    This dude can score all the goals he wants. He simply does not have the skills to be a Black Star property. He is not good enough.

    U mean to tell me that adiyiah hasnot still scored a goal in turkish division 2 and asamoaH gyan has only scored 1 penalty goal in uae. Our strikers are simply not serious I don't blame them they have no competition.

    Massa, Adiyiah is not even coming on as a substitute but he is firmly rooted to the bench.One mallam show at the u20 world cup and Ransford has been forgotten.

    Well done tagoe. I'm not going to jump in the air because we found our BS striker's solution. Still this is a mid-table team in the Turkish league and you're fighting to even stay in the starting line-up. However I think Tagoe can improve and has a brighter future than adiyiah.

    Tagoe goal is long overdue. We have a strikers out there performing. All the coach has to do is to be monitoring. Afriyie Acquah and Jo Ayew are playing in on of the best leagues in Europe and we still inviting Turkish bench warmers. Are we serious as a nation?
