Ghanaian youngster Kamaldeen Sulemana made his debut for French Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais on Wednesday night in a pre-season friendly against Getafe.
The 19-year-old came off the bench to set an interesting finale to the game as he forced a yellow card from a Getafe defender, although they lost 2-1.

The French Ligue 1 side went down to early goal when Enes Unal bended in a beautiful freekick after just 17 minutes to send the hosts into the break with the advantage.
Stade Rennais leveled after the break when Serhou Gurassy converted from the spot in the 57th minute.
But Getafe restored the lead nine minutes later, after Hugo Duro made no mistake from the penalty spot.
Kamaldeen Sulemana was then introduced in the 70th minute and just a minute later, he drew a foul from a Getafe player, who was yellow carded for impeding the 19-year-old.
Stade Rennes will continue preparations in Spain and will next face Levante with the Ghanaian youngster expected to start.
Their final preparatory game is against Italian outfit Torino before the start of the French Ligue 1 season.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that Kamaldeen Sulemana is leaving no stone unturned as he immediately zoomed into training after completing his move to Stade Rennais.
The 19-year-old joined the French club last Friday after signing a five-year deal from Danish side FC Nordsjaelland.
