Ghana international Farouk Mohammed shines as Enyimba FC defeat Remo Stars

Published on: 11 February 2019

Ghanaian defender Farouk Mohammed delivered an incredible performance for Enyimba FC in their 1-0 win over Remo Stars in the Nigerian Professional Football League on Sunday.

Onuwa Chukwuka’s 83rd-minute strike was all that the Aba Warriors needed to clinch all three points in the crucial home win.

The former Elmina Sharks defender was substituted in the 85th minute of the game after an assured performance for the hosts at the Enyimba International Stadium- Aba.

Since joining Enyimba FC as a free agent in 2017 after ending his contract with GPL side Elmina Sharks, Mohammed has been an integral member of the team.

He turned down the opportunity to sign Hearts of Oak before joining the West African rivals.

He helped Sharks to finish in mid-table in their debut season.

The tough-tackling defender was part of the Black Stars B squad which failed to qualify for the 2018 African Nations Championship which was staged in Morocco.
