Estimated read time: Less than a minute
MADRID (AP) — Ghanaian striker Emmanuel Boateng scored less than five minutes after entering the match for Levante to beat Eibar 2-1 in the Spanish league on Friday, moving his team away from the relegation zone.
Roger Marti also scored for Levante, which won its second in a row to stay seven points clear of the drop zone.
Boateng netted a 64th-minute winner for the hosts by clearing the goalkeeper inside the area and finding the open net following a fast breakaway. The goal came four minutes after he came off the bench, and one minute after striker Charles Dias equalized for Eibar.
Eibar, winless in three matches, stayed in ninth place.
