The striker finally broke his duck this season as his late strike saved the Frogs from an away defeat

Ghana striker Emmanuel Okyere Boateng grabbed his first goal of the season for Levante who shared the spoils 2-2 with Huesca in La Liga on Saturday.
 
Prior to this game, the 21-year-old had gone almost seven frustrating months without a goal since his hat-trick against Barcelona last season.
 
Christian Rivera shot the the hosts in front by the 23rd minute before Roger Marti levelled the score on the stroke of half-time for Levante.
 
Six minutes after the break, Xabier Etxeita brought Huesca ahead again in the game after he finished off an assist from David Ferreiro.
 
Levante coach Paco Lopez brought on Boateng for Erick Cabaco by the 70th minute and the Ghanaian proved to be hero four minutes later. The youngster, who won a penalty last weekend for Ghana against Ethiopia in the 2019 Afcon qualifiers, connected a pass from David Jason and fired past Aleksander Jovanovic.
 
Meanwhile, Raphael Dwamena was an unused substitute for the visitors.
 
Levante have now moved three places up to seventh on the log with 18 points, two points behind Real Madrid, who occupy the final position for Europa League qualification.
