Abdul Fatawu Issahaku came into the limelight after an excellent Africa U-20 Cup of Nations early this year, where he helped the Black Satellites win the competition.

The then 16-year-old was also adjudged Most Valuable Player at the tournament following his incredible display.

He also played a key role in Steadfast FC's campaign in the Division One and was linked with moves to abroad.

The highly rated youngster was reported to have signed for Liverpool but it emerged the contract fell through due to a last minute hitch.

Despite the failed move, the youngster earned a call up to the national team, where he has been ever-present in the call ups since March this year.

He made his long awaited debut in the match against Zimbabwe in Cape Coast, when Ghana won the World Cup qualifier against the Warriors 3-1.
