Okraku: Dwamena served the country well

The president of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Simeon-Okraku, has praised the late Raphael Dwamena for his contribution to the national team.

Dwamena died last Saturday while playing for Egnatia in their league game against Partizani when he collapsed on the pitch.

Eulogising the player in a statement, the GFA boss was saddened by the passing of the player but consoled the bereaved family.

“He served his country well and showed class anytime he represented Ghana,” President Simeon-Okraku said.

“This news is hard to take. Our best wishes go to the family at this moment”.

“May the Almighty God find him a peaceful rest” he added.

According to reports from Albania, the 28-year-old collapsed on the field in the 24th minute of the game and passed on minutes later at the Kavaja Hospital.

Dwamena had scored nine goals in the ongoing season.

The former Red Bull Academy player represented Ghana nine times and scored twice.
