Following the start of the 2020/2021 football season in almost all the European countries, Modernghana Sports takes a look at the top-performing Ghana players abroad over the weekend with the help of partners SofaScore.

From a large pool of players plying their trade in countries including England, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands, Sweden, USA, and other countries we focus on the players that came through with the highest ratings.

On the Rankings, Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC striker Ropapa Mensah leads the charge with his inspirational performance for his team in their big win at home against Hartford Athletic.

The young forward netted a brace on the Matchday to inspire his club to brush aside the opponent with a 5-0 win. His continuous display of good form earned him a high rating of 8.6, setting him apart from his compatriots although he ties with Christopher Antwi-Adjei.

Christopher Antwi-Adjei was also in action for SC Paderborn in Germany during an away clash with SC Wiedenbruck in the DFB Pokal.

He had an excellent game of 90 minutes where he provided 2 assists to power his team to the next round of the domestic cup competitions with a 5-0 thrashing of the opponent. His 8.6 rating is also well deserved!!

Number 3 on the list of top 10 Ghana players abroad is towering defender Lalas Abubakar.

The former Ghana U-20 center-back excelled for his Colorado Rapids outfit over the weekend when the team defeated Real Salt Lake 5-0 to clinch the Rocky Mountain Cup.
