Former WAFA midfielder, Lawrence Agyekum, says his best game during his time in the Ghana Premier League was the encounter between WAFA and Hearts of Oak in the last game of the 2020/21 season.

In the season being talked about, WAFA made history by finishing third in Ghana’s top flight, their best since making their debut in the league.

As part of achieving that, the Academy lads needed a win on the last day of the season to cement that position as Aduana FC were also not far behind.

But Agyekum turned out to be one of the best players on the day at the WAFA Park as the Sogakope-based side defeated the eventual league champions to claim that spot.

In an exclusive interview with Joy Sports, the 19-year-old didn’t shy away from picking that game when quizzed about his best game in the Premier League.

“The last game when the league was ending against Hearts of Oak,” he said.

“We won 1-0. We needed a victory in that game so we could seal the third position. I really tormented them. I gave them nightmares.”

The teenager also picked his goal against Karela United in that same season as the best he scored in the league.

“My best goal was against Karela United in Cape Coast. I dribbled past five players and I lobbed [the ball] over the goalkeeper.”

Agyekum currently plays for Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian league after joining the club from WAFA in February 2022.
