Accra Lions’ goalkeeper, Daniel Afful, expressed his delight after helping his team secure their first win of the season.
The Black Satellites’ shot-stopper managed to maintain a clean sheet as Accra Lions triumphed over regional rivals Legon Cities during matchday 2 of the Ghana Premier League.
Afful showcased his skills with some incredible saves in the game, including a crucial one-on-one stop against Samuel Armah.
“Credit to my teammates, they all did well. It was not only my effort. At a point I realize my teammates were tired and I had to step up,” he said.
For his outstanding performance, the talented goalkeeper was awarded the Man of the Match accolade.
“This is my first clean sheet in the season and I am hoping to keep more. Hopefully, I will do that in our next game,” he added.
The only goal of the game was scored by Evans Botchway, who connected with a corner kick from Remember Boateng.
Accra Lions’ next challenge will be an away match against Chelsea in Berekum on matchday three.
