Ghanaian youth midfielder Brian Amofa scored to rescue a point forÂ Strasbourg in their 1-1 away stalemate withÂ OrlÃ©ans in the French Ligue de National on Friday night.Â
Strasbourg, a one time top club in the French Ligue 1, are now struggling to avoid relegation in the CFA - the fourth-tier of French football and needed positive results on Friday.
And, the 21-year-old Ghanaian attacking midfielder put them ahead in the 60th minute when he punctured the hosts defence with a measure of skill.
He dimmed two players inside theÂ OrlÃ©ans area before thrusting a darting drive at goal which beat the keeper with an ostentatious precision.
But Strasbourg could not shelter the lead as OrlÃ©ans crawled back and broke their weakened safeguard to level the scoring after just 9 minutes of Amofa's opener.
Amofa signed a five-year-contract with Swiss side FC Sion in 2011 but could not make the grades at the club hence his move to seek regular playing time at Strasbourg.
