Ghanaian footballers Razak Abalora and Patric Kpozo have achieved a double victory with their club FC Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova.
The duo played crucial roles as Sheriff Tiraspol emerged victorious in the Moldovan Cup, defeating CSF Balti in a penalty shootout.
In a tightly contested match, both teams failed to find the back of the net during regular play, leading to a penalty shootout to determine the winner.
Former Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Razak Abalora proved to be the hero as he showcased his skills, helping his team secure a 7-6 victory on penalties.
This triumph in the Cup competition adds to Sheriff Tiraspol’s earlier success in winning the Moldovan League title, completing a remarkable double for the club.
Throughout the season, Abalora and Kpozo have been instrumental in the achievements of Sheriff Tiraspol, making significant contributions on the field.
As a result of their domestic triumphs, Sheriff Tiraspol will represent Moldova in the prestigious UEFA Champions League in the upcoming season.
While Abalora has been absent from the Ghana national team in recent times, Kpozo earned a call-up for the doubleheader against Angola in March, showcasing the recognition of his performances.
The success of Abalora and Kpozo in Moldova highlights the talent and impact of Ghanaian players on the international football stage.
