Ladies and gentlemen, you are about to witness a titanic football match in a few seconds. It promises to be one of the most exciting matches ever played. Stay tuned.
The referee blows his whistle for the commencement of the match between Mahama United and Opana Eleven, Julius Debrah sends a long one to Nii Lamptey Vanderpuje, he heads the ball to Fiifi Kwettey, Fiifi surges forward across the centre line and fires a long range shot, but goalkeeper Sammy Crabbe punches it over the cross bar for a corner kick.
Haruna Iddrissu is standing behind the ball for the corner kick. He sends a nice one into the penalty box, but John Boadu kicks it over the bar for another corner kick. Kikikikikiki, pressure be what? Horace Nii Ankrah takes a beautiful corner into the area of Opana Eleven, Kennedy Agyapong heads the ball to Bawumia, but Stan Dogbe intercepts the ball from Bawumia, and kicks it to Afriyie Ankrah , Ankrah sends a beautiful one to Omane Boamah; he heads it nicely to Julius Debrah, Julius dribbles the ball past two men and gives a nice pass to Spio Garbrah. He is moving with the ball, he sends a terrific pass to Horace Nii Ankrah, he chests the ball and sends a long one to Afriyie Ankrah, Afriyie dribbles the ball past three men in a Brazilian style, but the ball was intercepted by Sammy Awuku.
Sammy Awuku sends a quick one to Gabby Okyere Darko, Gabby turns round nicely and sends a mid-air pass to Nana Addo, but he is too short to get his head to it, and the ball crosses the line for a throw-in.
Ekow Spio-Garbrah picks the ball for a throw-in, he throws it to Stan Dogbe, he brakes the ball and sends a nice pass to Haruna Iddrisu, he sends a quick one to Julius; Julius moves towards the penalty box; it’s becoming dangerous. Paul Afoko attempts to intercept the ball but couldn’t do “foko”, Julius surges forward dangerously, putting pressure on the defence of Opana Eleven, Kwabena Agyapong moves in with a tackle, but it’s a goooal! It’s a gooal! Ladies and gentlemen, Kwabena Agyapong has scored an own goal. The pressure was too much for Opana boys.
Afoko is being substituted with Messi Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu The ball is at the centre line, Chairman Wontumi sends a beautiful pass to Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, he also sends a quick one to Mahamadu Bawumia, he moves dangerously towards the penalty box, are we going to see the equalizer? Bawumia! He moves on. Ooh what a tackle? Fifi Kwetey kicks him mercilessly.
The referee pulls his whistle, what am I seeing? There seems to be trouble. Olalaa! The referee points to the penalty box. It’s a penaaalty! Oh what a calamity? Bawumia is standing behind the ball ready to take the kick. Mathematical Bawumia! What can he do? A shot, and it’s a goooooooooooooalkeeper! Fantastic Amissah-Arthur! Somehow, goalkeeper Amissah-Arthur was able to claw the ball back before crossing the goal line; oh what a save? Laa ilaaha illallah!
Amissah-Arthur sends a long aerial ball to the middle of the pitch, Nana Akufo-Addo attempted to put his head to it, but again his height was a disadvantage, and he was easily challenged by Spio-Garbrah. Spio chests the ball and sends a short pass to Omane Boamah, Omane sends a back heel pass to John Dramani Mahama. He dribbles past three men, Magic Mahama, what can he do? He flashes his legs over the ball in a Ronaldhino style. He moves dangerously towards the penalty box; the spectators are cheering JM! He surges forward, it’s a gooooooooooooal! JM scores by sending a powerful drive to the far left corner of the goal post. Sammy Crabbe was completely mesmerized, he found himself diving to the opposite direction of the ball. What a goal. Ladies and gentlemen, Mahama United 2, Opana Eleven 0. The referee whistles for the end of half-time.
The second half of the match has begun, and two substitutions have been made on the side of Opana Boys. Kwabena Agyapong out, Akomeah in; and Sir John replaces Sammy Crabbe, John Boadu sends a long one to Freddie Blay, he turns beautifully and sends a short pass to Bawumia, Bawumia sends a pass to Kennedy Agyapong; a shot, and the ball deflects from the body of a United player, and it’s a corner kick advantage to Opana Eleven.
It is 70 minutes into the second half, and the scores remain Mahama United 2, Opana Eleven 0. Nana is ready to effect the corner kick; he is panting for breath, he curls a nice one to Chairman Wontumi, Wontumi sends a long volley, but oops, it’s over the bar. That was a very disappointing kick from Wontumi, he was completely unmarked, but chose to be absolutely wasteful,
Goalkeeper Amissah-Arthur throws the ball to Nii Lamptey Vanderpuje, Nii Lamptey to Ekow Spio-Garbrah, Spio to Stan Dogbe, he turns round and passes the ball to Fiifi Kwettey, he sends a long one to Afriyie Ankrah, Afriyie sends a pass to Haruna Addrisu , Hruna to Horace Nii Ankrah, Horace to Omane Boamah. Oh my God the United team is a delight to watch. Omane dribbles the ball past two men, and sends a beautiful pass to Horace Ankrah, he turns round beautifully, but awwww, a savage tackle from Kennedy Agyepong. The referee whistles for an infringement.
Regular time of 90 minutes is up, and the referee adds injury time of 5 minutes. It has been an exciting match; and Mahama United leads ball possession with 53% and Opana Eleven are trailing with 47%.
Haruna Iddrissu sends a long one into the area of Opana Eleven. Freddy Blay attempts to clear the ball with a header, but it’s a goooooooal! Freddy Blay, he scores an own goal, this is absolutely unbelievable! Everything has come to an end, the referee has blown his whistle for the end of proceedings. Mahama United has won the match by three goals to nil, there is total ecstasy here at the Accra Sports Stadium for the fans of United. Opana boys are totally shattered; their supporters are sauntering out of the stadium with a heavy heart. This is your ace commentator bringing a live commentary from the Accra Sports Stadium. God be with you all till I come your way again.
