Abdul Fatawu Safiu scores 5th goal for Trelleborgs FF


Trelleborgs FF forward Abdul Fatawu Safiu scored his fifth goal for the Superettan side in their 3-1 victory against Norrby IF at the Borås Arena last night 16th August 2020.

Norrby kicked off proceeding scoring in the 6th minute through midfielder Dijan Vukojevic but Salif Camara-Jonsson would bring the score to 1-1. Safiu would secure his 5th goal in 13 appearances and the advantage for the guests with a fine strike on the 78th minute before Fredrik Liverstam sealed the vital away victory with a late goal.


25-year-old Safiu would secure a move to Trelleborgs FF last year after impressing for Kumasi Asante Kotoko at the Normalization Committee Special Competition claiming the top scorer prize. He joined the second-tier side for the remainder of the 2019 season with an option to extend the deal for a further two years.


The attacker also played an instrumental role as the Porcupines reached the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup. He also earned him a spot in Ghana’s provisional squad for the recent Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt but he fell short of making the final 23-man roster.
