Ghanaian versatile midfielder Philip Ackah was named the Man of the Match following his scintillating performance for Al-Suwaiq in their slim home victory over Ibri club in the Oman Sultan Cup.
The former Amidaus Professionals player marshalled the midfield as he started the build up that led to the 1-0 win at the Seeb Stadium on yesterday.
Al Suwaiq progressed to the next stage of the competition beating Ibri Club 6-5 on penalties after Khalil Al Alawi scored the only goal in the 90th minute to send the game to penalty shootouts.
However, the first leg ended in a 1-0 victory for Ibra Club through Youssef Al-Ghafri’s 29th minute effort a week earlier.
Ackah has been a key figure for his side excelling in different roles and also contributing to four goals in the ongoing season.
