Former Black Stars regular defender Francis Dickoh capped an impressive night as he lasted the entire duration of the game for FC Midtjylland who posted a slender 2-1 win over rivals F.C København in the Danish derby on Friday.
The 31-year-0ld experienced towering center-back was a piller in defence for the giants who shocked their bitter rivals with an away win.
While Dickoh was in action for Midtjylland, former Ghana U20 invitee midfielder Daniel Amartey was impressive in central midfield role for København while Danish-born Ghanaian striker Danny Amankwaa also led the attack for the Whites.
But their combined efforts could not get the results for them as the visitors scrapped all the points available with Sylvester Igboun and Kristian Nielsen striking late to record a narrow victory for them.
Dickoh returned to his country of birth last season to sign for Midtjylland and has been influential in their campaign helping them to finish in a Europa League spot.
