Ghana international Kassim Nuhu Adams marked his first competitive starting berth for Fortuna Dusseldorf with a dream goal in their narrow 2-1 defeat away to Borrusia Monchengladbach.
The former TSG Hoffeinheim centre back opened the scoring for his visiting team at the Borrusia Park from an Andre Hoffman’s well timed assist to give Dusseldorf the lead after just 6 minutes into the game.
The Black Stars center back switched camps from Hoffeinheim in the summer transfer window and marked his first start for his new team with the opening goal before their host rallied back to earn a comeback win.
Marcus Thuram dusted himself from the bench to score twice for the host in the hugely entertaining game.
Ghanaian trio, Kevin Ofori, Nana Ampomah and Bernard Terkpetey could not gatecrash into the game despite making the match day squad.
Dusseldorf drop to the 12th position on the Bundesliga log with just 4 points from 15 available whiles Monchengladbach moved into the top five with 10 points.
