Former Hearts of Oak midfielder Isaac Mensah netted a potential Puskas Award winning goal for Petro de Luanda in the Angolan top-flight on Tuesday.
Mensah scored an incredible long range Puskas Award winning goal, as his lone hit helped Petro de Luanda defeat Academica Petroleos Do Lobito 1-0 in the Angolan Premier League.
The former Hearts of Oak playmaker pounced on a loose ball around the centre-arc after a poor clearance by Academica’s goalkeeper.
The 25-year-old, who is popular known as Messi in his native country, unleashed a long-range strike after seeing the beleaguered custodian off his goal line.
His winning goal has lifted Petro de Luanda to 2nd on the Angolan top-tier standings with 31 points — two points adrift of C.D Primeiro de Agosto — but with a game in hand.
