Stephen Dankwa scored a stunning goal in RTU’s friendly victory over Hope Academy on SUNDAY afternoon.
Shaibu Ibrahim Tanko’s side claimed an entertaining 3-0 victory at the Tamasco Park,
but it was Stephen’s outrageous strike outside the penalty area of the away side which will steal all the headlines.
The Pride of the North were 1-0 up in the second half when the attacking midfielder picked a pass outside the 18 yard of Hope Academy,
beating two defenders before driving a ferocious strike into the net in some style.
Earlier, Baba Kushibu scored his first goal since joining the club in the 19th minute while Moses Abayese was gifted a third after the opponents goalkeeper tried to dribble him when he was given a back pass.
“I am very happy,” coach Tanko told sports24online.com
“The result is obviously not the most important thing, but it is always important.
I’m happy because there were things we tried in training around some principles of our play defensively and offensively and I could see them.”
“We still have two games to play and I am optimistic we will get better before the start of the season,
It was a difficult test because we played against a good team” he continued.
Real Tamale United will engage Catholic Star next Sunday,
as they continue to find tune their preparations ahead of the start of the Division One League which kicks off on 3rd December 2020.
