Bassey, playing as leftback as against his usual central defence position, scored to help Ajax beat hosts FC Volendam 4-2 in a Dutch league game Saturday.
He headed in a cross in the 39th minute to give Ajax a 2-0 lead.
It was a quick response to the criticisms he and Ajax came under after a big home loss to Napoli in the Champions League Tuesday.
He played for Glasgow Rangers (Scotland) before he joined Ajax Amsterdam this season.
