This weekend some Ghanaians were on the score sheet, but not all are your usual sources. Mahatma Otoo got his scoring boots back on, with Kwarasey’s teammate Bismark Adjei-Boateng also grabbing a goal. But among them all, it’s Adam Abdul Basit who stole the show as he came off the bench to score twice and win the game for his side.

It's encouraging to continue seeing Anthony Annan in consistent action.
