Dramani goal shocks Russia

Haminu Dramani returned to punish his former club as his stunning overhead kick earned Kuban Krasnodar a 1-0 win over Lokomotiv Moscow in the Russian top-flight.

As if telling Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac: "Are you watching?", the midfielder chested down a cross before acrobatically volleying home the 90th minute winner.

The Ghana international's goal jumped to the top of the best goals' chart in Russia and also earned him a place in the country's top 11 players for this week.

This could probably be Ghana's best goal in Europe this season – a true strike that would delight many of his countrymen.

Dramani, who was loaned out to Kuban from Lokomotiv at the start of the season, emphatically answered his former employers that they were wrong in giving him less playing time last season.

His performance is also a direct response to Ghana coach Rajevac who left the winger out of last month's World Cup qualifier against Benin.

Dramani was a constant menace for the visiting team throughout last night's game and a Lokomotiv defender was given a straight red card as he brought down the speedy winger who was edging towards goal.

But the Ghanaian was not to be denied few moments later as he deserved to score the only goal and when it came, and it was an absolute cracker.

A ball was clipped into the area and Dramani took it on his chest before hitting an outrageous overhead kick into the corner of Lokomotiv's net.

It was a sweet revenge for the winger so late in the game, sinking giants Lokomotiv to 12th position in the league and his excessive jubilation attracted a caution from the referee.

With this performance Dramani is sure to back in the good books of coach Milovan Rajevac who continued his globe-trotting to the United States this weekend to monitor Ghanaian players there.
