Match Ratings : Leonard stars as Sharani, Addae dazzle Kotoko in Kumasi

Not much flaws can be attributed to the brilliant display of Karim Zito’s lads against Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

A well worked pattern was visible from the blast of the whistle as Zito’s men stepped up individually to ensure Dreams stay in contention for a semi final spot in the GHALCA G8 competition.

Richard Addae scored in the 45th minute to hand Dreams FC a lone goal victory over the Porcupine Warriors. See how they fared.

  • Ishahu Yahaya ( GK ) – 4.5
    Another good chapter for the young goalie. Stepped up when it mattered most by saving Frederick Boateng’s penalty.

 

  • George Dwubeng – 4.0
    Tough nut to deal with. Challenged every ball in his territory.

 

  • Maxwell Arthur – 4.2
    A very good performance from Maxwell. Used his energy well and made effective runs upfront.

 

  • Issah Yakubu – 4.5
    A rock in defense. His rugged style ensured sanity at the back.

 

  • Razak Cromwell – 4.0
    Gave Karim Zito reasons why he should make the starting line up. Totally convincing both in defense and on the offensive.

 

  • Patrick Arthur – 3.8
    Not much impact on the game but played his role well.

 

  • Godfred Asante – 3.5
    Effective until injury forced his substitution in the 60th minute.

 

  • James Waife Iniesta – 4.0
    More clinical and deadly in the second half. Great display.

 

  • Leonard Owusu “Jingles” – 4.5 ⭐️
    Talisman for the squad. Key in all moves and created that opener from Sharani to Addae in the 45th minute.

 

  • Zuberu Sharani – 4.2
    Very influential. Assisted the opener from Richard Addae. Should have capped off a fine day with at least goal as both chances fell to his weaker foot.

 

  • Richard Addae – 4.5
    Very good performance as he troubled the opponents defense all afternoon even after his opener.
