Tekpetey and Ofori score in Fortuna Düsseldorf’s 6-0 thumping of Meerbusch in friendly


Ghanaian players Bernard Tekpetey and Kelvin Ofori found the back of the net to help German Bundesliga side Fortuna Düsseldorf post an emphatic 6-0 win over lower division side TSV Meerbusch in a friendly match on Tuesday.

Following a fairly good start to the season where the top-flight side has managed to win one and lost one on the ongoing 2019/2020 season, Düsseldorf decided to play a warm-up game ahead of match week 3.

In a match played at the Meerbusch-Lank training park, the Flingeraner emerged as 6-0 winners to give them a boost as they continue preparations for the upcoming weekend.

Ghanaian youngster Kelvin Ofori netted a brace with pacey winger Bernard Tekpetey also getting his name on the scoresheet.

Other scorers on the day included Robin Bormuth and Thomas Pedle.

Meanwhile, Black Stars defender Kasim Nuhu picked up a minor injury and lasted only 45 minutes of the exercise.
