Mahatma Otoo scored an overhead kick for Sogndal FF

Ghana stand-by striker Mahatma Otoo scored a wonderful acrobatical overhead kick for for Sogndal FF in their 2-1 victory over FK Brann in the Norwegian top-flight on Tuesday evening. 

The 22-year-old hit the opener for Sogndal under just six minutes and helped them protect the victory until he was replaced in the 93rd minute.

Sogndal went into the tie at the Fosshaugane Campus in high mood following their impressive form in their last four league games with the Ghanaian striker playing a crucial role in the success.

The former Hearts of Oak playmaker was on point with his timing as he turned home a Azar Karadas weighted cross from the right with an overhead kick to register his 5th league goal of the season.

Otoo's fine form for Sogndal has seen him make the Ghana stand-by list for the 2014 World Cup.

    1. Kwarasey2. Afful3. Schlupp4. Essien5. Boye6. K.Asamoah7. Dede8. Kevin9. Gyan10. Warris11. Muntari Boye will play central defense with Essien right in front of him but behind the center circle. That means Essien will help both the defence and the midfield. Asamoah will be in front of Essien but will be behind Kevin. That means Asamoah will be playing central midfield with the help of Muntari on the left and Dede on the right with Essien behind him. Kevin will also help in midfield but will also be feeding the balls to Warris and Gyan as he will be playing behind them.leonMay 20, 2014
