I saw with my very eyes!


I agree with you. He was a deadly striker who hardly missed in the 18 yard line. He was a striker who created his own goals. He could dribble with the best of them hence the name, Nana Aggrey in comparison with Ghana legend Aggrey Fynn.

Kwasi Owusu and Dan Owusu were strikers who come closest to him. What separates Opoku Afiriyie from them is that, Opoku Afiriyie was very mobile and difficult to contain by defenders because of his dribbling skills. There might have been strikers before him that I never watched but he was the best striker in Ghana from the 1970's till now. Please don't even mention the name Asamoah Gyan.

Opoku Afriyie because of his dribbling acumen started his Kotoko career as the right winger(Number 7)

To me, he is arguably the best striker in Ghana's history.
