Ghana forward Majeed Waris is delighted to have netted his first goal and the winner for Strasbourg in their victory against Toulouse on Wednesday night in the French Ligue 1.
Waris was introduced into the game in the 73rd minute and two minutes later netted the winner after squaring up a pass from Thomasson.
"Let’s smile and dance together. Happy for the three points and my first goal. More to come Insha Allah. Thanks to the support and all the people that kept believing in me,' he posted on Social Media after the game.
Waris joined Strasbourg on a six-month loan deal from Portuguese giants FC Porto in the just ended winter transfer window.
The Ghana international was handed his debut against Monaco two days after signing before enjoying 30 minutes of action against Marseille over the weekend.
Waris was brought on in the 74th minute in their midweek encounter against Toulouse on matchday 23 of the French top-flight league.
The striker repaid the faith shown in him by coach Thierry Laurey as he smashed home the winner two minutes later.
Waris struck the ball from close range after he was laid on the ball by Adrien Thomasson but his celebration was truncated as the referee signaled to check the legality of the goal before consulting the the Video Assistance Review (VAR).
Referee Karim Abed signaled that the goal stands after the VAR review.
The win sent Strasbourg to 9th on the table with 33 points in 23 matches.
