Ghanaian defender Daniel Opare starred in defence for Augsburg who secured progress to the next round of the German Cup after beating fifth-tier side Ravensburg 2-0 on Friday.

The 25-year-old former FC Porto defender played an influential defensive role and lasted until the 92nd minute at the GEBERIT-Arena in Pfullendorf.

Augsburg manager Dirk Schuster handed a starting role to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Ghana star and he anchored the defence with stead until he was replaced late in the game.

Opare was limited to just four (4) Bundesliga appearances last season due to injury complications.
