Ghana's No. 1

Abraham Frimpong cameos as Ferencvárosi defeat Dinamo Zagreb to progress in UCL qualifying stages

Published on: 17 September 2020

Ghanaian defender Abraham Frimpong climbed off the bench to help Ferencvárosi beat Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb and reach the final round of qualifiers to the group stages of the UEFA Champions League. 

Frimpong replaced Adnan Kovacevic in the 73rd minute and provided steel as the Hungarians held on to win 2-1 at the Groupama Arena.

The hosts wasted no time in taking the lead after a brilliant exchange between Civic and Tokmac found Gergő Lovrencsics in the second minute, who latched onto the ball to score the opener.

Dinamo Zagreb leveled after defender Myrto Uzuni netted an own goal twenty minutes later.

Both sides went into the break very cautious with the results at 1-1.

However, it was the home side who took advantage of a second-half dominance to grab the winner.

Uzuni redeemed himself, calmly slotting in the second with 25 minutes left.

Manager Serhiy then brought on Frimpong to solidify the defence, which he did as he controlled the back despite the pressure from Zagreb.

Ferencvárosi are now through to the final stage of qualification after brushing aside Djugardens, Celtic and Dinamo Zagreb.
