Ghanaian midfielder Majeed Ashimeru was on target as Red Bull Salzburg romped to a 5-0 victory over Austria Lustenau in the final of the ÖFB-Cup, Austria’s national cup competition on Friday.
Ashimeru, 22, blasted home the fourth goal in the 65th minute of the tie to claim his first trophy since moving to Europe three years ago.
The rasta-haired midfielder raced towards the edge of the Lustenau penalty box before unleashing an unstoppable shot past the goalie of the second-division team.
Ashimeru who lasted the entire duration of the game later took to Twitter to express his delight with the victory:
It was RB Salzburg's first match since the COVID-19 pandemic halted play earlier this year.
The match marked the beginning of a return of domestic football in Austria, with the league set to resume on June 2 with the start of the league's championship and relegation rounds.
Salzburg were also handed a big boost in their quest for that title this week, as previous league leaders LASK Linz were deducted points on Thursday for holding team training sessions in violation of pandemic rules.
Though LASK will appeal the penalty, the decision currently changes Salzburg's three-point deficit to a three-point lead in the title race with 10 games to play.
