Sulley Muntari On Target For AC Milan.
Ghana international, Sulley Muntari, was on target as his Italian side AC Milan scored two late goals to defeat Scottish side Celtic Glasgow in their UEFA Champions League group opener.
Milan’s former midfielder, Kevin-Prince Boateng, now with Germany’s Schalke 04, also gave a stellar performance which saw the Germans win 3-0 over Steaua Bucharest
The game at the Rosseineri seemed to be heading for a draw only for Celtic to concede two late strikes to hand all three points to the Italian side.
First it was Izaguirre who deflected a shot into his own goal on 82 minutes before Sulley Muntari reacted quickly from a rebounded free kick by Balotelli to seal all three points for the Rossoneris.
Boateng helped Schalke secure a third straight win since he joined the Ruhr Valley club but his talismanic credentials will be given their sternest test against Bayern Munich tomorrow.
The Ghana international, who joined Schalke just three weeks ago, scored one goal and helped orchestrate a 3-0 win over Steaua Bucharest in the club’s opening Champions League group match on Wednesday.
It was Schalke’s third win without conceding since Boateng, whose powerful midfield presence has formed a strong bond between defence and attack, signed from AC Milan.
“Kevin-Prince does not shy away from a challenge easily,” Schalke coach Jens Keller told reporters.
“He always makes himself available and demands the ball. He talks to the team and leads it and it is very clear that he has already become a very important player in this team.”
