With God all things are possible, and with ‘never say die’ spirit everything can be achieve. Hearts of Oak achieve one of the greatest comebacks in the league’s history as they beat Inter Allies 2-3 in matchday five of the Ghana Premier League at the Tema Sports Stadium on Sunday despite going down two goals earlier on.
Inter Allies took the lead with goals from Frederick Boateng and Gockel Ahortor. They took total control of the game and pelted the away side with a lot long balls, but the Phobians withstood the pressure.
Kenichi Yatsuhashi’s side started warming themselves into the game but they had Inter Allies wonder boy Evans Mensah to contend who was delight to watch but the scores stayed goalless at the first half.
After the break, Allies continued on the ascendancy, with Frederick Boateng spearheading a move that led to the opener by the 49th minute.
Abdoulaye was forced to make a wonderful save to deny Ropapa from scroing the second goal for Allies in the 56th. However, with Hearts continues struggles in defense, Allies got the second in the 63rd minute through Gockel Ahortor.
Gradually Hearts warmed themselves into the game and began initiating attacks. In the 68th minute Isaac Mensah combined beautifully with Mustapha Essuman with the former pulling one back for the visitors.
Togolese international Foovi Aguidi and Ibrahim Musa came in for Eric Kumi and Cosmos Dauda respectively as Hearts poured forth in search of the equaliser.
With ten minutes to go, and still Heart trailing by two goals to one, substitute Ibrahim Musa latched on to a loose ball and slotted home the equaliser on 80th minute. Musa again struck his second to snatch a late winner for Hearts of Oak, to give them two points above second-places Wa All Star.
