Ghana international, Abdul Fatawu Safiu climbed off the bench to score on Saturday afternoon to earn an important 1-0 win for his Trelleborgs FF side in the Swedish Superettan.
In a Matchday 28 fixture of the 2020 football season against Dalkurd FF at the Studenternas IP grounds, the former Asante Kotoko attacker missed out on a starting role but was named on the substitute bench.

Samuel Leach Holm stepped up to take responsibility but could not find the back of the net, leaving the game on level pegging.
Two minutes later, Abdul Fatawu Safiu was introduced by the Trelleborgs FF manager as he replaced Erik Andersson.
The 26-year old had an impressive game and went on to score in the 90th minute with an assist from Mäns Soderqvist to power his team to a 1-0 win over Dalkurd FF.
With today’s equalizer, Fatawu Safiu now has 6 goals after featuring in 26 matches for Trelleborgs FF in the Swedish Superettan.
