Gyasi impresses in Spezia Calcio’s home defeat against Udinese in Serie A


The Ghanaian had a decent game for the Little Eagles as they ended up with a narrow defeat against the Zebras at home

Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Gyasi was in action when Spezia Calcio suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Udinese in Serie A on Sunday.

The 27-year-old was handed a starting place in Spezia’s squad and lasted 85 minutes before he was substituted after picking up an injury.

Gyasi came close to opening the scoring for Spezia in the first half when he combined with Ebrima Colley.

After the break, substitute Daniele Verde went past two defenders but his last ditch pass to Gyasi for the Ghanaian to have a shot on target was blocked.

Gyasi was substituted by the 86th minute mark for Eddie Anthony Salcado when he signalled the technical team of a knock he had suffered earlier.

With a minute to end the game, Jean-Victor Makengo set up Lazar Samardžić to score the only goal of the game and break the hearts of the home supporters.

Gyasi was part of the Ghana squad that played against Ethiopia and South Africa in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers. He, however, didn’t not make an appearance in any of the games due to an illness he suffered in camp.
