Kwadwo Duah, a Ghanaian striker born in Switzerland, found the back of the net during Ludogorets' 3-2 loss to Botev Plovdiv in the Bulgarian Cup final on Wednesday afternoon.

Despite dominating possession and having more shots on goal, Ludogorets could not secure the victory, as Botev Plovdiv emerged as the winners.

The game kicked off with Antoine Conte giving Botev Plovdiv an early advantage in the 4th minute, thanks to a header assisted by Ivelin Popov.
