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.

    AA needs to give francis dickoh a sexond chance!! With the sort of average central defenders in our team, his experience ll come in hand!

    He is a good central defender who happens to play at the wrong era for us when we seems to have a couple of good dedicated central defenders!

    We have to give him a second chance just like we gave the likes of tachie mensah etc and see the inputs he ll bring to the team!!

    Central defending is about experience and this guy has been around for a long time playing with some of our best central defenders and his contribution and experience ll be awesome!!!

    He is better than JOHN BOYE AND JONATHAN MENSAH!!

    Ghana has had worst coaches than AA! Most of the so called qualified coaches cldnt qualify Ghana to the WC and besides some of them are clueless are hell!!

    Dossena was riding on the shoulders of Ghanaians after leading our over-age under 20 satellite team in a meaningless touranment in Nigeria!! Ghanaians were thrilled by him simply because he was a white coach and he stood at the touch line wriggling his hand at touch line!!

    AA should be given his credit and besides if it wasn’t poor organization skills by the fa, Ghana cld have compete favorably in this WC!

    Again, under AA, Ghana played Africa BEST EVER WC MATCH(CLASSIC) against Germany!!!

    All the best well known sports tabloids around the WC has chosen that particular match as the best match in this WC with a great tactical direction from a great Ghanaian coach(AA)

    A prophet is not respecting in his time and POSTERITY LL BE THE JUDGE!

    MARK THIS! I always know what am saying!
