A first leg strike from Ghanaian forward Emmanuel Gyasi in the playoff finals of the Serie B has proved crucial in securing Serie A promotion for Spezia Calcio for the first time in the history of the club.
Last Sunday at the Stadio Alberto Picco, it was Gyasi’s brilliant first-half goal that earned his team a 1-0 win against Frosinone in the first leg of the Serie B play-off final.
On Thursday night, the two teams were in action at the Stadio Alberto Picco for the return leg of the counter. At the end of a pulsating encounter, Frosinone cruised to a 1-0 win courtesy a strike from Marcus Rohden.
Though the Serie B playoff final ends 1-1 on aggregate, Spezia Calcio has been crowned champions as a result of finishing higher on the league table at the end of the regular season, handing the team qualification to the top-flight league in the process.
The Serie A promotion is a historic feat for Emmanuel Gyasi and his teammates who have given their all throughout the 2019/2020 football season.
The Ghanaian this season has played 38 games in all competitions for Spezia and finishes the campaign with 10 goals and 6 assists.
