CRYSTAL Palace striker Kwesi Appiah scored his first goal for Ghana this evening to help book his country a place in the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations tournament.
Appiah, who was playing for non-league Margate just three years ago, has continued his development superbly since moving to the Eagles and with a number of loan moves to Football League sides.
However, the 24-year-old netted his first goal for his country on his second appearance after making his debut in a 2-1 win over South Africa on Tuesday.
It caps off a wonderful week for Palace on the international scene following Mile Jedinak's Australia winning the Asia Cup tournament on home soil, with the 30-year-old skipper lifting the trophy.
