Raphael Dwamena returns one year after heart problem scare

Ghana striker, Raphael Dwamena made a strong comeback on Sunday, 3 October 2021 for his Austrian second-tier side BW Linz after a year out with a career-threatening heart problem.

Dwamena was named in the starting line-up and produced a convincing performance on his debut for the club.

He provided the assist which was finished off by Aleksandar Kostic to edge Wacker Innsbruck at the Tivoli Stadion Tirol.

Dwamena won a decisive duel, came over the right side into the penalty area and forced Knaller to make a great save- Kostic reacted and drilled home the rebound for the match-winner.

He announced his presence after six minutes when he made a smart move inside the box but his effort could not go past goalkeeper Knaller – it would have been a perfect debut for the fit-again star.

Twenty minutes into the game, Dwamena went down in the penalty area but the referee Jandl allowed play to continue.

The TV pictures showed there was clear foul on the former Levante striker and Linz were denied an obvious penalty.
