The 20-year-old has singled out his goal against Real Madrid as his best feat in his football career

Ghana striker, Richmond Boakye Yiadom says his goal against Real Madrid in September last year remains the best achievement in his career so far.

The Juventus striker who joined Spanish side, Elche on a season long loan deal almost denied Real Madrid the three points with his header.

His 91st minute goal brought Elche on level pegging after Cristiano Ronaldo’s 51st minute goal.

However, the Portuguese football star grabbed a late winner for Real in the 96th minute through a controversial penalty.

“I must say it is one of my greatest achievements in life because scoring against a team like Real Madrid, a few people have gotten this opportunity to play against these clubs so if I am one of the players to score against Madrid then I think I should always be happy,” the 20-year-old told

Boakye Yiadom who powered Sassuolo to Serie A promotion before joining Elche has scored three goals in fourteen La Liga appearances.
