Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Boakye was adjudged the best player in Halmstads BK victory over Degefors in the Swedish Superettan League on Tuesday evening.
Halmstads BK recovered from a disappointing friendly 1-1 draw with Varbergs BoIS to record a win in the second round of the Swedish second-tier league at Orjans Vall Stadion.
A brace from Japanese international Kosuke Konishita denied the visitors from victory after Erik Lindell opened the score in the first minute.
The Ghanaian midfielder played full throttle of the match with a sterling output which earned him the man of the match award.
Boakye joined for the Blue and Black lads from Varbergs BoIS during the last winter transfer window.
He has made 14 appearances for Halmstads BK so far.
