The midfielder proved his mettle once again over the weekend as he helped his club to pick three points in their fight to win qualification to Bundesliga

Ghana midfielder Daniel Kofi Kyereh scored twice when St. Pauli defeated Karlsruhe 3-1 in German Bundesliga 2 at Millerntor-Stadion in Hamburg on Saturday.

The 25-year-old, who is expected to play a key role in Ghana’s Fifa World Cup playoffs against Nigeria later this month, was handed a starting role by St. Pauli coach Timo Schultz and he repaid him with some fine performance and wonderful goals.

Kyereh opened the scoring for St. Pauli by the 14th minute before he added another goal eleven minutes later when he connected an assist from Guido Burgstaller.

St. Pauli made it 3-0 before the break through Simon Makienok Christoffersen by the 35th minute.

After the break, Kyereh came close to score his third goal of the day and complete his hat-trick but his effort was blocked the visitors’ defence.

Karlsruhe pulled one back by the 66th minute through Philipp Hofmann and although they pushed more men forward in search of two more goals, it was too little too late.

Kyereh has now taken his tally to nine goals and nine assists after 22 games in the German Bundesliga 2.

St. Pauli currently sit second on the log with 47 points, same points with Darmstadt who lead the log.

Ghana interim coach Otto Addo is expected to announce his squad for the World Cup playoffs against Nigeria next week and Kyereh will obviously be part and could even start the game since captain Andre Ayew has been suspended.
