Video of church choristers singing Hearts of Oak anthem surfaces after victory

Meanwhile, Accra Hearts of Oak have taken the lead in the Ghana Premier League title race after beating fierce rivals Asante Kotoko in Accra on Sunday, June 27, 2021.

Ghana U-20 captain, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh, scored the game's only goal in the second half as Hearts go three points ahead of the Porcupine Warriors.

In a tense battle at the nation's Wembley, both sides created decent chances in the first half, with Hearts rattling the post through captain Mohammed Fatawu. Daniel Afriyie provides lots of problems to the Kotoko defence with his pace and skills.

However, after the break, it was the host who was determined to break the deadlock. And a little after the hour mark, Daniel Barnieh clipped a long-range effort to beat Kwame Baah for the winner.

However, hearts maintained their composure as coach Samuel Boadu rang last-minute changes, bringing on Caleb Amankwa and William Dankyi to preserve the lead.
