Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Ibrahim Danland was crowned champion of the inaugural Joy Sports FIFA FaceOff competition following a dominant victory over Hearts of Oak goalkeeper Richard Attah.
Danland, who recently returned to the Porcupine Warriors after a successful loan spell at Berekum Chelsea, proved too strong for Attah in a best-of-five series, giving Kotoko fans the bragging rights over their fierce rivals.
Danland, nicknamed Gudda, won three, drew one and lost one of the five games played.
The first game ended in a stalemate. Danlad, using Barcelona, while Attah opted for Juventus. They used the same teams for the second and third games, in which the Kotoko man won 3-2 and 3-0.
At this time, Attah knew that another defeat will finish him. Something had to give.
After the back to back defeats, the Phobian switched teams and went for Liverpool while Danlad remained loyal to Juventus. Attah won, convincingly, 4-1.
The defeat prompted Danlad to also change his team for Game 4, selecting PSG against Attah's Liverpool. The decision by Danland proved to a good one as his Parisians beat the Kopites 2-1.
