Goalkeeper, Abdul Manaf Nurudeen was the hero on the day as the Black Stars beat Chile on penalties in the third-place play-off game in the Kirin Cup.

The shot-stopper made two saves during the penalty shoot-outs as Ghana edged out the South Americans earlier on Tuesday, June 14.

Manaf Nurudeen saved back-to-back kicks from the Chileans after Jordan Ayew scored for Ghana to level the score with the South American side taking the lead while Gary Medel sent his effort off target to give Otto Addo’s side the victory.

With the Black Stars playing the last 15 minutes of the game with nine men, the performance of the KAS Eupen goalkeeper was the eye-catching moment of the game and Ghanaians were quick to applaud the Manaf Nurudeen for his heroics.
