Ghana’s Salisu Mohammed shines as Southampton holds Man City in Premier League


The centre-back proved his worth once again as the Saints held the Blues to a goalless draw at St. Mary’s Sports Stadium on Saturday

Ghana defender Salisu Mohammed was a first half substitute when Southampton surprisingly held Manchester City to a goalless draw in the Premier League at St. Mary’s Sports Stadium on Saturday.

The 22-year-old was brought on to replace Jack Stevens who picked up an injury by the 37th minute. Salisu combined beautifully with Jan Bednarek at the back as the Saints prevented City from scoring or win the game.

Salisu’s Southampton almost took the lead in the second half of the game after referee John Moss awarded them a penalty only it to be overturned after a VAR check.

Salisu is yet to make his international debut for Ghana after turning down an opportunity from former coach Charles Kwablah Akonnor.

It is likely that he will finally accept the invitation when a new coach arrives as Ghana prepare to face Zimbabwe in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers in October.

The Black Stars need a win badly to overtake South Africa who currently lead Group C with four points after two games.
