England legend Gary Lineker has joined the long list of admirers of Mizak Asante following his audacious solo goal in Ghana’s Division Two League playoffs.

However, Asante came on in the second half to score the equaliser for Golden Kick FC with an audacious effort.

He dribbled past four defenders and went round the goalkeeper before calmly slotting the ball into the net.

Asante’s goal has since gone viral on social media, with many Ghanaians already tipping the strike to be nominated for the Puskas Award.

Reacting to the goal after it was shared on Twitter by the Guardian, Gary Lineker couldn’t help but express his admiration.

The 1986 FIFA World Cup Golden Boot winner reacted to the goal by tweeting “Woah”.
