Ghana defender Daniel Opare scored his first goal for his new side Royal Antwerp as they beat PAOK 3-1 in a pre-season game.

Opare joined the Belgian side on a two-year deal as a free agent from German Bundesliga side Augsburg last week.

The 27-year old will hope that his first goal will be a sign of good things to come in his new adventure.

The former Ashgold defender opened the scoring for Royal Antwerp in the 16th minute of the game curling in a fantastic effort.

Lazarous Lamprou pulled parity for the Greek giants in the 33rd minute but further goals from Jonathan Bolingi and Samuel Owusu won Antwerp the match.

Opare lasted 70 minutes while Owusu played 89 minutes of action.

Opare 27, has failed to live up to expectation after winning the U20 World Cup with Ghana in 2009.

He joined Real Madrid but failed to break into the first team and has since played for five other clubs.
