Ghana star Daniel Amartey scored his first-ever goal for struggling English champions Leicester City to rescue a point at Stoke City in the league on Saturday.
The central midfielder, who joined Leicester in January this year and has made 25 appearances in all competitions for the club, finally found the back of the next in the 88th minute when he rose above all to head home and ensure a 2:2 final score.
Leicester had played with ten men from the 20th minute after star striker Jamie Vardy was sent off for a two-footed challenge. Stoke then scored twice in the quick succession just before the break, but Leicester hit back in the second half, with Argentine star Leonardo Ulloa halving the score in the 74th minute, two minutes after replacing Algeria ace Islam Slimani, and Amartey snatching the point.
