One of the things that makes football the “beautiful game” is its ability to shock and inspire you at any given moment.
Even when a game seems beyond all hope, a side can find something from deep within to fight back and defy the odds.
That was the scenario at the Aliu Mahama Stadium on Wednesday as Real Tamale shockingly came from three goals to snatch the three points with a 4-3 deserved victory over Nsoatreman Fc.
Many have already described this feat as the greatest comebacks in the Division One League footballing season, as the Pride of The North revived their hopes of qualification into the Premier League.
With Coach Shaibu Ibrahim Tanko’s side sitting in the relegation Zone after nine matches, they went into the game knowing that a win would revive their hopes for Premier League glory.
But that wasn’t going to be the case at least in the first half. RTU trailed 3-0 after 30 minutes, before a Mustapha Fuseini’s 37th minute strike accidentally brought the Northern Blues back into the match with a consolation.
United surged from from the second half with quick goals from Stephen Dankwah and Abu Naeem leveling matters for the home side, and the points were all but confirmed when Sadat Mohammed scored a cracking goal to make it 4-3.
Though is the first time Real Tamale United have conceded three in the first half this campaign, the magic of this match epitomises the wonder that surrounds the club in the early 80s.
Next up for RTU is a trip to Kintampo on Sunday before engaging Young Apostle three days later. The win meanwhile moves RTU to tenth position with 11 points after ten games.
