Albert Adomah shines as Middlesbrough shock Manchester City

Ghana winger Albert Adomah was in delightful form for Middlesbrough FC as he helped them to defeat English Premier League title-contenders Manchester City 2-0 in the FA Cup on Saturday. 

Adomah lasted the entire duration of the game at the Etihad Stadium as Boro advanced to the next round of the competition with a memorable win over the Citizens.

Though the 27-year-old could not add to his three league goals this season, he played an influential role in the win.

Patrick Bamford and Kike swept Boro in to the fifth round of the FA Cup on a proud afternoon for the club.

Adomah led the Boro attack in search of a goal in the final attack of the half that saw him set up Lee Tomlin whose low shot from the edge of the box was deflected for a corner. City dealt with and were on what could have been a telling break when referee Phil Dowd blew for half-time.

Adomah was involved again in the early minutes – best two chances in the ensuing minutes fell to the visitors as first Adomah, set up by Tomlin, strode through the middle but his lob was grabbed by Caballero before Tomlin, through the middle, beat the goalkeeper with a low shot which thudded back off the left-hand post.
