Ibrahim Danlad defeats Richard Attah in Joy Sports FIFA FaceOff

Published on: 02 August 2020

Asante Kotoko goalkeeper, Ibrahim Danlad, recorded a comfortable victory over Hearts of Oak shot stopper Richard Attah in the first edition of the Joy Sports FIFA FaceOff. 

Danlad traveled from Kumasi to Accra to face his opposite number and beat him in the best-of-five series. The Porcupine Warrior won three games and Attah won one.

In the first game, Danlad opted for Juventus and Attah went for Messi's Barcelona. The game ended 1-1. In the second and third games, Danlad got right to work, recording back-to-back victories (3-2 and 3-0) with some thrash talking to match.

Attah realized the need to change and he went for 2019 Champions League winners Liverpool. The choice proved to be a shrewd one as he recorded a resounding 4-1 victory over Danlad's Juventus.

Danlad, however, made a response. He chose PSG to combat Attah's Liverpool and was rewarded with a 2-1 victory with some bragging rights as he made his way back to Kumasi.



The Kotoko fans were in ecstasy after watching the encounter on the Joy Sports handles on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

Before the headliner began, there was an exhibition between two popular twitter figures namely;Asiedu Mends (username: @Mempeasem) and KalyJay (username: @gyaigyimii).

Mends won the first match with a 4-2 result but KalyJay replied with a 6-1 victory in the second match.

The competition, hosted by Joy Sports, is the first Esports competition done by a major media house in Ghana.



The Joy Sports team is expected to come up with more events in the near future.
