Published on: 13 April 2020

Former Ghana international Augustine Ahinfulhas revealed that his goal against Cameroon in 1993 CAF African Youth Championship (AYC) final is the best of his career.

Arhinful scored a sublime goal to double Ghana's lead over Cameroon after Daniel Addo's opener, as Black Satellites won the tournament and also qualify for their maiden FIFA U-20 World Cup in Australia,

He was one of the deadliest strikers in his prime for both club and country.

"There are a couple but I think Mauritius 93 when we were playing the final against Cameroon”, he narrated in an interview with Joy FM.

"We met Cameroon again in the final, we won 2-0, the first goal was scored by Daniel Addo and I scored the second goal and it was an incredible shot from the edge of the area (the 18 yards on the right side)

"I took the ball turned and shot the ball, and it was like a rocket the ball just zoomed straight into the net”.

"Roger Milla was the head of their delegation, he was sitting there so I just ran to where he was sitting and I did the dance he did in the ’90s when he scored in the world cup..and I was given a yellow card for that".

"So that goal stands out because that goal had qualified Ghana to our maiden world cup which is the youth tournament in Australia.

"And most of us had not travelled that far and it was time for us to also go to other continent and see what we could do".

Ahinful featured in Germany, Turkey, Switzerland, Italy and Portugal at club level.

He made 19 appearances for the Black Stars after representing the youth teams
