Ghanaian trio Basit, Jamal, Bashiru win Kosovo FA Cup with Prishtina FC
Ghanaian trio of Jamal Arago, Abdul Basit Khalid and Abdul Bashiru lifted the Kosovo FA Cup trophy on Sunday afternoon with Prishtina FC.
Former Dreams FC striker Abdul Basit Khalid scored the only goal for Prishtina FC to lift the 2018 FA Cup in Kosovo over FK Vellaznimi on Sunday afternoon.
While Basit was leading the attack for Prishtina FC another former dream FC player Abdul Bashiru and former MTN Soccer Academy reality show champion Jamal Arago were playing influential roles at the back.
Jamal Arago who played a s holding midfielder in the game was phenomenal as he kept forcing applauds from the fans while Bashiru was as fluid as he has always been on the flanks.
Basit shot the home side in front in the first half but Vellaznimi drew level in the second half to throw the game into extra time.
The game was thrown into the lottery of penalty shootouts but Prishtina converted all their five spot kicks with Vellaznimi missing one.
Despite missing out on the Kosovo League title with just three points separating them from the eventual winners, the Ghanaian trio will have something to celebrate for after beating Vellaznimi.
This means Prishtina will play at the play-off stage of the Europa League next season.
