Football News FA Cup: Abdul Fatawu Issahaku's wonder goal enough as Leicester City cruise over AFC Bournemouth
FEB 28, 2024 LISTEN

Promising Ghana attacker, Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, clinched victory for Leicester City in their recent FA Cup encounter against AFC Bournemouth on Tuesday evening.

Issahaku's moment arrived with a breathtaking goal, securing a 1-0 triumph for the Foxes at the Vitality Stadium.

Entering the fray in the 64th minute as a substitute for the seasoned winger Marc Albrighton, Issahaku showcased his prowess by finding the net in the 105th minute during extra time.

The loanee from Sporting Lisbon received a precise pass from Nigerian international Kelechi Iheanacho and skillfully curved the ball past Bournemouth's goalkeeper Mark Travers after a deft touch.

This goal marks Issahaku's inaugural contribution of the season in the FA Cup, a testament to his debut appearance in the tournament. However, his impact extends beyond this moment, having tallied three goals and nine assists in 28 appearances for Leicester City in the Sky Bet English Championship.

Speculation is rife regarding Issahaku's future, with reports linking the soon-to-be 20-year-old to a permanent transfer from Lisbon. Talks are reportedly underway between Leicester and Sporting, with a proposed 17 million euro deal on the table for Issahaku.

In a parallel narrative, another talent from the Black Stars, Antoine Semenyo, took to the field, replacing Enes Unal for AFC Bournemouth in the 46th minute.
