The second half continued on the same pattern until the 75th minute when Parma conceded a penalty when their full back, Robert Bentil in an attempt to clear a ball from the danger zone handled it in the penalty box for Yankey to score from the resultant kick in the 75th minute. In the dying minutes of the game, Parma made frantic efforts to equalize but try as they did they could not find the net till the end of proceedings.
