Caleb Amankwah reveals tonic behind WAFA's historic 5-0 win against Hearts in 2017

Former WAFA defender Caleb Amankwah has disclosed the reason behind their whitewashing of Accra Hearts of Oak S.C in 2017.

The Academy boys whipped the Phobians 5-0 in Sogakope, in what will remain in the annals of Ghanaian football history as the best giant-killing feat.

According to Amankwah, who now plays for Aduana Stars, they were gingered by utterances of then Hearts midfielder Malik Akowuah before the game.

"We (WAFA) were gingered by the Malik Akowuah's utterances to beat Hearts of Oak 5-0 in Sogakope," he told Sikka Sports.

Before the game, the Rainbow club was riding on high horses following a run of good form, but they were brought to earth by the young boys in Sogakope.

Majeed Ashimeru and Abdul Wahab Ibrahim gave WAFA a two-goal lead before the break, but a second-half collapse from the Phobians saw the home-side add three more goals at the Red Bull Arena.

Daniel Lomotey netted a second-half brace to add to Ibrahim Abubakar's goal.

The defeat remains one of the worst defeats suffered by the Phobians in the Ghana Premier League.
