One thing that is very scarce in football is to see a goalkeeper registering his name on the score sheet especially with African football. After three years, Ebusua Dwarfs goalkeeper, Razak Ibrahim did the unusual after scoring from a fantastic free kick to level the score for his side Ebusus Dwarfs when they were down by a goal to nil.
It was a match week 13 fixture of the ongoing Normalisation Committee Special Cup when Ebusua Dwarfs hosted Liberty in Dawu yesterday. Initially, the game was to be played in Cape Coast but was shifted to Dawu due to a stadium ban handed to the Crabs.
On the game itself, the away team Liberty Professionals scored first through Elvis Kyei Baffour in the first half. Moments later, Dwarfs had a free kick at a very advantageous position, goalkeeper Razak Issah came all the way from his post and placed the ball at a top corner to give Dwarfs the equaliser.
As the scoreline still remains 1-1 and the tempo of the game kept going higher, skipper of the Scientific Soccer lads, Simon Zibo scored a glorious winning goal to claim victory for his side, his fourth goal in the campaign so far seeing them maintaining third position on the log in Zone B with 22 points.
History has it that, the last time a goalkeeper scored a goal in Ghana’s top flight was Philemon McCarthy who scored for Dreams FC when they took on New Edubiase FC in 2016, three years down the line. The record has finally been broken by goalkeeper Razak Issah of Ebusua Dwarfs yesterday.
