Ghana international winger Albert Adomah scored twice to help Premiership hopefuls Middlesbrough to draw 2-2 at Huddersfield Town in the English Championship on Tuesday night.

The 26-year-old pecked the scoring for Boro with a clinical 10th minute finish after an Adam Hammil 3rd minute opener for the host and he returned after the break to score the second of the game and his personal 11th strike of the season.

Adomah, who has featured regularly in the Black Stars' squad for the past two years, powered a fierce drive from the center of the box to equalise for his side but Nahki Wells ensured the visitors ended the first-half with a 2-1 lead after he scored in the 33rd minute.

However, just some few moments after recess, precisely two minutes, Adomah put Middlesbrough back on level terms.

The winger darted through the opposition area before hammering a shot to the bottom left corner - a goal similar to his first goal.

Adomah has been Middlesbrough's highest scoring player this season. He has scored 11 times from midfield.

His scoring prowess from the wings since the start of the season is smoething coach Kwesi Appiah cannot ignore when he names his provisional squad for the World Cup on 13 May.

    great Show adomah.i have always believed in ur abilities n capabilities. adomah must definately be on the plane to brazil. i have always been saying that Adomah is a big plus to the tam because he is the only natural winger we have. besides that he can run back to help the defence and the most awesome Thing is he cn score Goals which is a big plus. lets all hope he replicates his Club form to the national Team.

    Kudos Adomah, the only natural right winger we have currently. He definitely meets the criteria as far as player invitation to the national team is concern, he will no doubt be on the plane to Brazil.

    Although he is bit of a "one way" player... I can see him being critical in certain games where a goal is of the utmost importance. He can be a substitute in an attack minded set up.

    To the line ups above..I like them but to be honest, I am not convinced with Essien as a starter. Access: I would put KPB on the wing and bring in Agyemang Badu in the middle. Richmond: I would put Muntari in for Essien in your formation. My only problem is that I think Essien is at a "30 minute" stage of his career. He cannot give you a full 90 minutes or even 60 minutes.

    This guy is WC bound but he seems to be overraw by big occasion!! I hope he prove me wrong!! Ghana don't lack wingers!! Our biggest problem now is a typical PLAYERMAKER who can connects both the midfield and the attack!! Our play lacks coordination becasus of lack of a playermaker!! If we really want to.make an impact in the WC, then this is the time to experiment and find one now! A player maker is the one who controls the flow of a teams offensive play and is often involves in passing moves which results into goals!! There are two types of player makers, the TREQUARTISTA and REGISTA( deep-lying player maker).... Trequartista are players who are given FREE ROLE and they sit infront of the midfield and the attack!! Usually called No 10!! They are highly technical players with vision, dribbling,passing and shooting!! Regitsa are deep-lying players who sits deep infront of the back four using space to control the flow of the game!! They are sometimes term as defensive midfielders or box-to-box.... With AA formation of 442, we can never ever have a coordinated attacking flow becasus of lack of trequistar in our team!! 442 is an attacking or offensive formation and u need a central attacking midfield position to link the midfield with the attack!! Ghana has too many deep-lying player makers or defensive midfielders who only shield the defence leaving the midfield to the opposition!! Zambia outplayed in Kumasi because their 451 formation has kalaba having a free role with sinkala doing the defensive works whiles Ghana only protected their back having them the midfield!! Should Ghana find a decent PLAYERMAKER, NO TEAM CAN beat us in the WC! Mark it!!

    Without a playermaker, our play ll always be disjointed!! We need PLAYERMAKER with a free role who can connects the midfield to the attack!! We have too many deep lying player makers or defensive midfielders who only shield the back line neglecting the midfield and the attack!! We need a TREQUISTAR ( a playermaker in a more central attacking midfield position) to connects the midfield with the attack!! A trequistar is a playermaker who sits in a free role in either in the center of the pitch or on the wings giving incisive thru passes or killer passes to the forward!! They are highly technical and uses vision, dribbling, passing and shooting to control the flow the game!! A typical example of Ghanaian trequistar is CLIFFORD ABOAGYE in Ghana under 20 squad!! He uses dribbling and incisive passes to control dominated and tear the chilean team apart in turkey!! This is what the bs is lacking!! We have too many REGISTARS or deep lying playermakers who shield the back four and uses space to send thru passes when the need arises!! We have too many deep lying playermakers or defensive midfielders who always neglects the central midfield to the opposition!! We need to have a trequistar or a central attacking midfielder( no 10) now and I bet anyone that NO TEAM UNDER THE PLANET CAN BEAT US!!

    442 is an attacking formation which relies solely on a trequistar or a central attacking midfielder!! Cant our coaches see that all these teams dominates us because we have no central linkman between the midfield and the forwards!! Our central midfield always looks hollow because our deep lying playermakers or defensive midfielders can only operate when they have enough space and enough time on the ball which doesn't always happens hence the opposition always seize our midfield!! Zambia dominated us becasus of this!! Malawi outplayed us in Kumasi because of this!! Sudan outplayed us in Kumasi during the second half becasus of too much deep lying midfielders!! Egypt dominated us in Cairo becasus of too many deep lying midfielders in our setup without any free role playermaker!! When the opposition pinned us to the wall, all our midfielders recoiled into their deep lying roles neglecting the central midfield to the opponents resulting in incessant pressure on us eg is the game against cape Verde in south Africa!! We need an advanced PLAYERMAKER or free role PLAYERMAKER who can operates frm the central, attacking midfield and wide positions in the wings!! If we can solve this problem, Ghana can win the WC!! We need a PLAYERMAKER to unlock well organized defence!

    The espn commentators were amazed by the thinking abilities of Clifford aboagye in the game against Chile!! Whiles most of our players were resorting to long balls and shooting to search for the equalizer, he simply uses deft touches, incisive passes,vision and pure guile to unlock the Chilean defence!! We had an awesome game against Chile becasus of one Ghanaian PLAYERMAKER by name Clifford aboagye and I can bet anyone that we have thousands and thousands of Clifford in our league and even in the bs!! The eurosport commentators dubbed that match the ' miracle of istanbul' comparing it to the that of Liverpool comeback against ac Milan in the champions league because of one genius Ghanaian playermaker called Clifford aboagye! This is what the bs is lacking now!! In that match aboagye setup all of our goals by simply controlling the game with pure pass and technical ingenuity and that's the AGORO PLAY OF GHANA!! AA maybe has to watch that match and see how Silas used aboagye in that game!! He was given an advanced free role and he link the defence, central midfield, attacking midfield and the forward superbly operting sometimes from wide positions on the wings!! This is the type of PLAYERMAKER or trequistar we need in bs!! Thank God we have many!! Let's try Dede, jordan( my prefer choice) and kpb and see!

    I feel as if that if we really utilize Kpb as a cam we could go far just with his intelligence on the pitch and with his pace and passing. And using Gyan as a second striker and waris on the top we could have a very potent attack
