Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu registered his first-ever goal for Southampton against Sheffield United in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night
Southampton progressed to the next round of the competition after beating Sheffield United 4-2 on penalty shoot-outs in the thrilling game which ended two-all draw after regulation time at the Bramall Lane Stadium.
The 21-year-old made good use of a cross delivered by Nathan Tella to give the Saints the lead in the 53rd minute as they come from behind.
French midfielder Ibrahima Diallo scored in the 23rd minute to cancel out Enda Stevens early goal for the home side but a strike from Ollie McBurnie on the 66th minute ended the fixture in a 2-2 pulsating stalemate.

His sterling output has earned him interest from several clubs in Europe including Spanish La Liga giants FC Barcelona.
