I pray King Faisal wins the FA Cup title - Godwin Ablordey

Published on: 15 May 2023

King Faisal assistant coach Godwin Ablordey is hoping the team can annex the Ghana FA Cup title after edging out Nsoatreman FC to reach the finals.

Faisal earned a hard fought 3-2 win to edge Nsoatreman in the semifinal at the Kwame Kyei Sports Complex in a keenly contested game.

The Nsoatre-based club shot into the lead through Samuel Ofori, who scored from the spot in the 9th minute but Baba Yahaya restored parity by scoring for Faisal in the 35th minute.

Frimpong Boateng found the back of the net to extend King Faisal's in the 44th minute.

After recess, Kwame Nana Junior levelled for Nsoatreman on 55 minutes but Samuel Adom Antwi restored Faisal's lead in the 64th minute which was enough to earn them a spot in the final.

"I'm very very happy because when we went to the press conference I told them something and they've made me proud. They've made it for me."

“I told them, when I was playing for Hearts of Oak, I played as a player and won the FA Cup. I came to Kotoko as player and technical man, I won and here, I’m into the finals with King Faisal. So it is my prayer we win the final game and lift the trophy”

The Insha Allah Boys will aim to lay hands on the coveted trophy when they play Dreams on June 17 2023.
