Dutch-born Ghanaian forward Jonathan Opoku scored the leveller for Veendam as they fought from behind to defeat FC Oss 2-1 in the Dutch Eerste Divisie on Friday.

Kenny Teijsse had shot the visitors into the lead at the Gjaltema Stadion aan De Langeleegte four minutes before the interval but the 22-year-old Opoku pecked the scoring for Gert Heerkes’ side on the stroke of half-time.

Dutch international Tom Overtoom scored his 7th goal of the campaign just after the hour mark to seal a crucial win for the Yellow and Blacks.

Opoku who has taken his season tally to three lasted the entire duration of the game same as compatriot Mitch Apau who was commanding in central defence for Veendam.
