Ebenezer Ofori has relished on scoring in the MLS opener for New York City FC in their 2-2 draw with Orlando City.

Ofori who is on loan from VfB Stuttgart is said to have unleashed a powerful shot in the 13th minute to beat goalkeeper Brian Rowe as reported by Ghana Soccernet. 

The Ghana international posted on Twitter after the game," I thank God for my first 90 minutes and the first goal of the season. Decent performance from all the lads."

New York City FC then doubled their lead through Alexander Ring to go into the break with a 2-0 advantage.

However, after the break, Orlando City came back into the game when Christopher Mueller's free-kick got past everybody inside the box and zoomed into the net to pull one back.

With a quarter of an hour left for play, Canadian Tesho Akindele levelled for the home team inside the Orlando City Stadium.

Ofori, who has been re-signed again on loan from German side Stuttgart, lasted the entire duration of the match.
