The performance of the phobians during the match with Kotoko saw Nii Noi at the dugout and Coach Boadu watching from the stands made sure that they get their definite results to show the true colors of the league. The points they are wishing to accumulate all start with the crucial encounters between the big opponents in the league. This will make them play boot for boot in the away smaller teams if you can claim the league then away matches should at least be draw. It will be very difficult if the Phobians have their starting eleven making it in every match like what we saw in their game against kotoko and yesterday with Inter Allies.
Brazilian play maker Fabio Gama Dos Santos headlined Kotoko’s line-up, which also included key striker Opoku, who had five goals to his name coming into the derby. Hearts’ latest signing Salifu Ibrahim, who was announced on Saturday, was unsurprisingly absent from the matchday squad but talismanic winger Patrick Razak, as expected, made the starting XI, alongside Kwadwo Obeng Junior and Victor Aidoo. It was indeed a dramatic start in Accra as Kotoko received a penalty in just the second minute of the game after Opoku was brought down in the box. The striker elected himself for the kick but saw his third-minute effort saved by Hearts goalkeeper Richard Attah.
A run of bad results in the league triggered the current happenings in the club, having collected two points from a possible twelve. The Phobians however managed to put their acts together for the Week 15 encounter against Ebusua Dwarfs at the Accra aspires Stadium on Sunday. Hearts of Oak’s scintillating start to the game saw them create some decent chances. The Rainbow Club were correctly handed a penalty in the 6th minute by referee Jones Akubiem after goalkeeper Issah Razak brought down Patrick Razak in the box.
Any team in the league has not find the antidote to bring down the performance of Patrick Razak in this season. To calm the player down and keep him in the pocket is not easy but if you are able to do so then the Phobian team is fully locked. The player is very pacy and skillful but left with working on his finishing to make sure that he become one of the best in the world. To be counted among the likes of the Mbappe, Neymar, Dembele, Salah, Sterling et al. The presence of the wing forward has put a lot of pressure on teams that will be put on counter making them skeptic when moving forward and coming back to defend a lot. Debutant Kwadwo Frimpong scored his first-ever league goal for King Faisal to hand them the equalizer on the 49th minute of the game. Hearts of Oak piled up pressure on the home side as they were in search for the opener in the last ten minutes of the game. A late spot-kick awarded to Hearts of Oak was neatly converted by Manaf Umar as the match ended in a 2-1 win in favor of the Phobians.
