Ghana midfielder Afriyie Acquah continued with his splendid performance form of late but endured a bittersweet outing as he netted and got sent off in Torino's 3-2 away victory in a Serie A match on Sunday afternoon.

Goals were expected in Sardinia and the neutrals were not disappointed, as Marco Borriello converted an early penalty before Toro’s turnaround thanks to an Adem Ljajic scorcher and Andrea Belotti header.

Afriyie Acquah first scored a stunner from distance, then got himself sent off. The Ghana international unleashed a screamer under the bar from 20 yards out, though a slight deflection wrong-footed Rafael as he tried to swing an arm at it.

Acquah then saw red late in the game for a mistimed tackle from behind on Joao Pedro and Iago Falque saw his curler smack the woodwork where the crossbar meets the far post.

Cagliari scored an historic goal in stoppages, as Kwang Song Han became the first ever North Korean to find the net in Serie A. He was in the right place for his header on a Diego Farias cross from the left by-line.
