Ghanaian defender Phil-Ofosu Ayeh played full throttle for MSV Duisburg in their 3-3 draw at home to Saarbrucken in the German lower division on Saturday.

Kingsley Onugebu scored the opening two goals in the 8 th and 39 th minutes respectively before Marcel Ziemer and Raphael Korte pulled level for the visitors.

Duisburg put their noses in front again with the third goal through Kevin Wolze in the 65 th minute but that lasted for only four minutes as Philip Hoffmann equalized to settle the tie.

The 22-year-old right back was influential at the back with his trademark surging runs.

It is believed that Germany's national team coach Joachim Lowe who is famed for blooding young players is keeping close tabs on the player who technically, can play for either Ghana or Germany.
