Ghanaian midfielder Kwadwo Poku came good with a hat-trick of assists for New York City FC as they whipped Orlando City 5-3 in the American Major League Soccer on Sunday night. 

The 23-year-old first set up Spanish striker David Villa Sanchez for City?s third goal in the 67th minute before turning the architect once more for Thomas McNamara ? the American midfielder, four minutes later.

Poku did not end his heroics on the night right there as he proceeded to lay a brilliant pass to Mix Diskerud to seal the victory for City late into stoppage-time.

Poku?s impressive performance over the weeks in the American top-flight has helped him seal a permanent place in the team?s regular line-up.

Despite the arrival of Chelsea legend Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo, Poku has maintained his place in the squad and looks set to hold it down for the rest of the season.
