15-year-old Mizak Asante spoke to 3Sports barely 24 hours after announcing himself on the national football scene with a stupendous goal in a Division 2 match on Sunday.
The substitute controlled a ball inside the box with his back to goal, rotated 360 degrees in front of two defenders to wriggle his way out and then nutmegged another player to hit the bar line before shimmying the goalkeeper with a sharp right and left footwork.
Asante then slotted the ball past the near post to cap a virtuoso display.
His goal gave Golden Kick FC the equalizer against Mobile Phone People to draw 1-1 but triumphed 7-6 on penalties to qualify for the Division One League.
Speaking to 3Sports, the budding talent says he looks up to France World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe and aims to play at the highest level in football in future.
