Ghanaian players in Dutch Cup: Agyepong eliminated by Opoku, Benson scores, Gyasi enjoys victory, Ampong & Attobra both lose
Ghanaian youth midfielder Thomas Agyepong suffered elimination from the Dutch Cup on Tuesday with his NAC Breda side.

While the former Right to Dream Academy graduate was introduced in the second-half to help rescue his side, Dutch-born Ghanaian forward Johnathan Opoku Agyemang was unused Venlo.
Meanwhile former Ghana U23 attacker Raymond Gyasi was brought on in the second-half by FC Cambuur who snatched a narrow 1-0 win over third-tier Rijnvogels. Dutch-born defender Bright Ampong Zweistra played the entire duration of the game for the losers.
Elsewhere at the Sportpark 't Slot, FC Groningen made meal of a disgruntled Capelle side after trouncing them 4-0. 19-year-old Ghanaian attacker Festus Attobra warmed the bench for the losers.
Accra-born former Dutch youth international Fred Benson inspired RKC Waalwijk to a 3-0 away win over EVV. The veteran striker scored the opening goal for the visitors.
Former Ajax Amsterdam Academy defender Leeroy Owusu played the entire game for Excelsior Rotterdam who sniffed a 1-0 win over Barendrecht.
