Kelvin Yeboah was handed his first call up to the Black Stars by coach C.K Akonnor last week following his early season form in the Austrian Bundesliga.

Meanwhile, in the Europa League play-offs, it was Mura who opened the scoring after three minutes through Ziga Skoflef.

Jakob Jantscher leveled for Sturm Graz from the spot fifteen minutes later and on the hour mark, Oliver Kitieishvili put the visitors in the lead.

Kelvin Yeboah put the icing on the cake with a 63rd minute strike as Sturm Graz return to Austria with a first leg advantage.

An aggregate win from the first leg will send them through to the group stages of Europe's second tier competition.

Kelvin, nephew of the legendary Anthony Yeboah, has now scored 4 goals in five matches for the club this season.

Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that, Black Stars debut invitee Kelvin Yeboah, has marked his Black Stars call-up with a goal for SK Sturm Graz in an away win over LASK Linz.
