The Tamale Steadfast Fc goal poacher will be a player to watch out for today when Ghana take on Morocco in a second group C game at the Afcon U-20 Championship in Mauritania.
The wonder kid has been sensational in his performance since breaking into the spotlight. The Tamale born 16 years old is a product of Tamale Utrecht Football Academy. He left the Academy boys to join Steadfast in the 2019 league season.
He was a member of the team that represented Ghana at the 2018 Afcon U-17 Championship in Niger. He also recently captained the U-17 team that represented the Country during the U-17 Championship in Togo, where he scored against Nigeria to hand Ghana a draw.
He then got a call up to the national U-20 team for the ongoing U-20 Championship in Mauritania. He then send a signal to the other ten nations taking part in the tournament of his presence, by firing a thunderbolt strike on the 31st minute just around the centre to double Ghana’s lead against Tanzania in the group C opener.
His spectacular performance in the game won him the man of the match award.
Abdul Fataw Issahaku will be a key figure for Coach Karim Zito’s men against the Moroccans.
A win will confirm Ghana’s qualification to the next round of the competition. The game is scheduled to kick off at 7:00pm.
