Magical two-goal debut for Nasiru Mohammed, Waris scores

Published on: 26 August 2012

Ghana youngster Mohammed Nasiru had an outstanding European debut on Sunday when he scored twice to rescue his Swedish club Hacken.

The ex-Ghana U17 captain scored the two goals in ten minutes to turn the game on its head and secure a famous 4-2 win over league leaders Elfsborg.

The 18-year-old even overshadowed his compatriot Abdul Majeed Waris, the league's leading scorer, who sealed the victory for Hacken.

The victory ensures that Hacken stay in second position but close the gap at the top to five points.

The hugely talented youngster's prospects were not noticed in Ghana because the 2011 Black Starlets failed to qualify for the World Cup.

But Nasiru was on hand to prove his worth when he came on in the 65th with the home team was down 2-1, he scored two quick goals to put Hacken in the lead.

He struck his first in the 71st minute before scoring the second five minutes later to make it 3-2 in favour of Hacken.

Black Stars striker Waris sealed the victory for Hacken when he scored very late in the game to take his league goals to 14 so far this season.

While Waris is the crowd favourite, the night belonged to Nasiru who was understandably delighted with his heroics.

"I am very very happy this evening for what has happened to me," the youngster striker told

Nasiru could now be competing for the team's starting place in subsequent matches.

He joined Hacken this summer from Kumasi-based side Rainbow.
