Ghana international, Alfred Duncan, was splendid in his side's 1 - 1 draw game against Switzerland side FC Luzern in their UEFA Europa League first leg qualifiers of round three matches Today.

The 23-year-old was instrumental in midfield when Sassuolo held their Swiss counterparts at their own backyard following a pulsating one-all scoreline at the Swissporarena.

Duncan destabilized the midfield of coach Markus Babbel's side which prevented them to dictate the game to their advantage in both halves of the game.

Marco Schneuwly gave his side the lead with a superb strike on the 8th minute before Sassuolo's forward Domenico Berardi converted a spot kick on the 42nd minute to hand his side a vital point.

FC Luzern kept piling pressure on the italian giants but could not get the needed goal to clinch all the three maximum points at stake.

The return leg  will come off next week at the Mapei Stadium in Italy.
