Godfred Donsah played as a goalkeeper for Cercle Brugge in their league match against Racing Genk on Saturday night.

In a remarkable end to proceedings at the Jan Breydel Stadium, the Ghanaian midfielder was forced to go in goal for the final stages of the keenly contested game.

Cercle Brugge had an extremely unfortunate evening against Racing Genk and coach Bernd Storck had to replace two injured players after just twenty minutes of play.

And when goalkeeper Hubert fell suffered an injury in the second half, hence Donsah had to play in goal for the rest of the game.

"I was never a goalkeeper, only occasionally after training at Bologna. But if necessary, I take my responsibility. The trainer called three players and I said I would do it," Donsah said.

"You have to be ready for every task you get", the midfielder explained.

Donsah started the match as a midfielder, but after Omolo's injury, he was placed at the heart of the defence as centre-back. And after the injury of Hubert he became a goalkeeper.

Junya Ito opened the scoring for Hannes Wolf’s men in the 34th minute of the encounter before Thibo Somers levelled for the hosts.

In the 70th minute, Sander Berge scored the match-winning goal to help the Blue-White secure maximum points.
