					Dramani excels as Kuban stun Spartak

Dramani excelled in the game against Spartak Ghana midfielder Haminu Dramani has given coach Milovan Rajevac a firm reason why he should not be excluded in future Black Star matches

Dramani was named man-of-the-match on Saturday when his Rssiaan club Kuban Krasnoda defeated giants Spartak Moscow in the second game of the season.

The 23-year-old was excluded from Ghana's World Cup qualifying squad against Benin on Sunday but has vowed to fight back for his place.

He demonstrated his desire to return to the national team as his surging runs down the right created a myriad of problems for the Moscow club.

A crowd of 26,000 at the Kuban Stadium saw Michael Laudrup's Spartak Moscow lose away to Krasnoda-based club.

Haminu, starting his second straight game since joining the club two weeks ago, used his pace to creatre chances for his Malian team-mate Dramane Traore.

Unfortunately for Spartak, their best chance was missed by the Brazilian striker, Alex, who failed to convert a penalty in the 21st minute.

That miss proved costly for the Championship favourites, as Traore, the 26-year-old Malian who like Haminu is on loan from Lokomotiv Moscow, scored what would eventually be the winner for Kuban in the 31st minute.

The Ghanaian was instrumental in thwe goal and several other chances he created were fluffed.

The team, also known as the Cossacks, got the season under way in earnest with their first points of the season, and the home fans, the Kubantsy, will be happy with such a great result against Spartak Moscow.

One point from two games is not the start Spartak would have anticipated for the 2009 season; after only two games, the pressure will be on coach Michael Laudrup.
