A brace from former Accra Hearts of Oak striker Cosmos Dauda in the Oman Professional League, gave his side a thrilling 3-2 win over Dhofar.

With the game tied at 1-1, Dauda produced a moment of magic, latching on a through pass in the box before unleashing his magical wand to confuse the Dhofar defender.

Shaping to shoot as he awaited the threaded pass, Dauda dropped his shoulder and sold the defender a dummy, forcing him to sit flat on his butt before rolling the ball from his favorite right foot onto his left to blast home.

It put Al Rustaq 2-1 up but stubborn Dhofar would not lie down without a fight. They drew level moments later.

Yet at the death, and with all hopes lost, Dauda completed his brace late in injury time to volley home the match winner and send the fans into rapturous delirium.

It’s goal number 4 for the CD14 man in five games in the Oman league.

And the striker has set his sight on more goals with six games and a cup final match to end the league season.

Cosmos Dauda has scored four goals in five matches.
