Cremonese took command of the game when they took the lead through Giovanni Valtulini in the 21st minute of the first half. But Parma came back to wrestle control in the second half with a flurry of attacks in their opponent’s half.
In the 66th minute, left winger Chaka Traore wriggled his way through three defenders to lay the ball for Awua who was lurking around the edge of the 18-yard box. The Ghanaian’s perfect first touch-enabled him to move past a midfielder and sent in a thunderbolt to equalize for Parma.
Mondoprimavera rated Ankrah 7 with the following comments “alternates excellent closures with setting errors, always puts physicality in duels and often wins them. In the second half, he is put in the middle of the field and finds a great goal from distance with a powerful right. ”
