Hearts of Oak striker likened to Brazil legend, Romario


Hearts of Oak head coach, Martin Koopman, has likened young striker, Hamza Issah to Brazil legend, Romario.

The promising striker was on the scoresheet as the Phobians recorded a 3-1 win on Wednesday against Medeama SC in the matchday eight games at the Accra Sports Stadium.

However, Issah missed out on the chance to register a hat-trick in the game as he had to leave the game after the first half due to a stomach issue.

Speaking after the game, the Dutch trainer praised Issah and likened him to the Brazil great who won the 1994 FIFA World Cup.

“It was a pity that Hamza was sick at half time, he had a little problem with his stomach…so I changed him but you see the qualities of Hamza,” he told StarTimes.

“He has something from Romario, low on the ground, and turns very fast. I like him very much. It was a pity that we had to change him but all the other players did a very good job,” he added.

Hearts of Oak now sit 13th on the league log with 9 points and will be hosted by Karela United in the matchday nine games at the Aliu Mahama Stadium this weekend.
