Espanyol
3-3 Villarreal
The former Villarreal player stole the show when his side drew 3-3 with Valencia last Saturday night. Wakaso first broke the deadlock in the dying embers of the first half before setting up Joan Verdú Fernández for Espanyol’s second goal. It was one of his good performances since joining Espanyol but unfortunately, they threw away the lead on two occasions and finally shared the spoils with Los Che.
Congratulations to Wakaso, Goal.com's 25th Ghana Player of the Week winner!

Honourable Mention
ASAMOAH GYAN  - AL AIN

The Ghana captain announced his presence right after recovering from a minor injury. Gyan came from the bench to score the third goal as Al Ain beat Al Itihad Kalba 3-1 in the UAE pro league.
JOHN BOYE - RENNES

The 25-year-old gave his team some hope after grabbing the second equaliser against Evian. Unfortunately, Rennes were unable to protect the 2-2 draw and eventually lost 4-2 - another good game by the Ghanaian defender.

KWABENA ADUSEI - KOTOKO

Azzaro, as he is affectionately called, got the late winner for Asante Kotoko in their game against Ebusua Dwarfs at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium over the weekend. The game was coasting to a draw and fans had even left the stadium and with seconds left on the clock to end proceedings, he came from nowhere to rekindle Kotoko's title defence hopes.

 

Each week our team of writers will put forward a selected candidate, as chosen by Goal.com Ghana, who deserves recognition for achieving something special that matchday.

You can also help us choose a worthy recipient of the weekly accolade by leaving your nominations and comments. Your suggestions will be taken into consideration.

It won't necessarily be the best player in the country - at least not usually - but whoever we crown will have accomplished something amazing. It might be for a particularly awesome performance or for something praiseworthy off the pitch - either way, the person in question deserves special attention...
