Published on: 10 May 2024

Hearts of Oak's youngster Hamza Issah has now become joint top goal scorers in the Ghana Premier League following his latest goal on Wednesday.

His latest goal came during the Phobians' crucial 3-0 victory over Berekum Chelsea at the Golden City Park in a match week 29 game.

Issah's decisive strike in the 19th minute injected much-needed confidence into the Phobians, propelling them towards two more goals scored by Linda Mtange and Kassim Cisse.

Former Hearts of Oak head coach Martin Koopman drew parallels between the young forward and Brazilian football legend Romario, highlighting Issah's burgeoning talent and potential.

Issah shares the top spot in the goal scorers’ chart with Berekum Chelsea’s Stephen Amankona.

However, the 21-year-old edges ahead of Amankona with 12 goals in 23 league appearances, while Amankona has achieved the same tally in 24 league matches this season.

Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s Ugandan striker Steven Mukwala follows closely with 11 goals to his name.
