Gary Alfonso, Fox TV Head of Network Group in Africa has affectionately poured praises on Accra Hearts of Oak’s left winger, Patrick Razak, claiming he’s his best player of the tournament, despite a different view from the tournament’s technical team.
Alfonso in a line of tweets 48 hours after the tournament seem not able to hide the excitement that comes with watching Patrick Razak dazzle on the left flank and took to Twitter to make his intentions known.
Also, Gary, entreated scouts to pay attention to the Accra Hearts of Oak’s young left winger.
“Yep, still my man of the match #WAFU2017 Patrick Razak @foxsportsafrica I hope the talent scouts were watching.
Nice to see the media agree with me about how great Patrick Razak was in #WAFUCupFinal – talent scouts agree?” – Gary Alfonso tweeted
Patrick Razak produced stellar two penalties after coming on for Gideon Waja just minutes into the second half – his pace usually his trump card, outwitting his markers and causing problems to the Nigerian defense.
He tore the Nigerian defense apart, contributing three assists to Ghana’s 4:1 win against the unbreakable Nigerian defense that has led an unprecedented ran of games without conceding.
Patrick Razak before the final had already laid one to club team mate, Kwame Kizito, in Ghana’s 2:0 second group game victory against Mali, ending the tournament as the player with most assists, four.
The Black Stars B team three years down the line have retained the West African Football Union trophy after beating Senegal 3:1 at the Baba Yara Stadium to win it in 2014.
