Girabola: Seth Owusu celebrates first victory in Angola

Seth Owusu has been celebrating a first victory in the colours of Angola side, Sagrada Esperanca after playing all 90 minutes of their 2-1 home win over Sporting Cabinda in Girabola on Saturday.

Owusu signed for Esperanca in the offseason but had to wait until last week to make his debut for the club following rigid and cumbersome visa and work permit procedures that made it impossible for him to join the club in Angola until two weeks ago.

After making a substitute’s appearance on his debut for Esperanca as they drew 1-1 away to Onze Bravos on May 16, the match day 13 of the 2015 Girabola season, Owusu walked straight into the starting line up for the game against Cabinda on the penultimate match day of the first round of the 16-team Angolan top flight on Saturday.

“I had a good game,” Seth Owusu told exclusively after his side notched all three points to stretch their unbeaten run to five league games.

“I’m very excited because its my first home game. Even though I have been playing friendly home games but officially this is the Girabola league and the club and the fans needed this win so I’m happy,” the tall left back said.

The three points helped take Sagrada Esperanca’s tally for the season to 19 points after 14 games and in 8th place ahead of their final game of the first round away to Petro de Luanda on Saturday.

“At least we gave the fans something to cheer up with, if over like 2,000 fans were happy about the win on Saturday then I am more okay,” Owusu stated. Follow @thedonplato
