Ghana winger Solomon Asante has been rated high after putting up another impressive performance for Phoenix Rising FC in the team’s 2-0 win against Las Vegas Lights.

The two clubs were in action on Sunday morning at the Cashman Field to fight for the available 3 points on Matchday 11 of the ongoing 2020 USL Championship season.

The in-form Solomon Asante earned a starting role and went on to make an impact to help his team pick up the win on the road.

Following the first half of no goals, it was the Ghana forward whose cross on the 52nd minute earned Phoenix Rising FC a penalty and an opportunity to take the lead.

Fortunately, prolific striker Junior Flemmings made no mistakes and scored from the spot to shoot the visitors in front.

In added time, Rüfət Dadaşov doubled the lead for Phoenix Rising FC after he was assisted by Jordan Schweitzer. That equalizer sealed the 2-0 win for the club against the matchday opponent, Las Vegas Lights.

Solomon Asante, 30, finished the game with a high rating of 7.7 from Modernghana Sports Statistics providers, SofaScore.
