Empoli midfielder Afriyie Acquah dedicated his goal against Sassuolo on Sunday, February 17 to his mom Ama Kwaadu. 

The midfielder was in top form for the Azzuris, scoring his side's second goal in the 3-0 victory over Sassuolo and felt fitting to pay homage to his mother who was watching from the stands. 

Acquah posted on Twitter dedicating the goal to his mum, "My goal dedicated to my mom Ama Kwaadu. She watched me today at the Stadio Carlo Castellani; that’s special!!."

The 27-year-old doubled Empoli's lead before halftime after Rade Krunic had opened the scoring on 34 minutes.

Acquah received a fine pass from Diego Farias and showed brilliant composure inside the box to bury the ball into the bottom left corner.

The sweet victory takes Empoli three points above the relegation zone.
