The winning goal was scored by Young Kotoko captain Prince Atsu, who sent a long shot past Kodie FC goalie Derek Asiedu during the exhibition game’s two 20-minute halves.

Atsu received boots from Lamptey as compensation for being named the game’s best player.

“I am overjoyed, because the caliber of play was outstanding. I value the chance and the welcoming atmosphere. Hopefully, this is the first of many such projects, said Lamptey.
