His goals are steering Lustenau to promotion, as they have established a commanding lead at the summit of the table.

The former Red Bull Salzburg youngster expressed his aerial command to head home a cross in the 27th minute at the Gernots Langes Stadium after the hosts had taken an early lead.

Dwamena restored parity for his side in the 70th minute when he swiftly capitalized on a goalkeeping howler to round up the custodian to score.

He then chested down a cross from outside the box and fired home the third in the 81st minute before he assisted the fourth goal to put away the game.
