German-born Ghanaian attacker Karim Bellarabi helped bottom-placed Eintracht Braunschweig to nick a point from Stuttgart after holding them to a 2-2 drawn game in the German Bundesliga on Saturday.
The 23-year-old set up Jan Hochscheidt in the 82nd minute to score the equalising goal for the struggling Lower Saxony-based club.
Braunschweig had to fight from a first-half 2-0 reverse to claim a point from the game and Bellarabi influence was crucial in the game as he released a well-articulated pass for Hochscheidt to score.
Bellarabi has scored twice from midfield in 19 games so far in the season, attracting interests from Hertha Berlin and Stuttgart but Bayer Leverkusen who own the player’s transfer rights would make a decision at the end of the season.
Bellarabi can play international football for three countries, Ghana, Germany or Morocco as his mother is a Moroccan and has a Ghanaian father.
He also holds a German passport as he was born in the European country and has featured for them at youth level.
