However there was a special viewer among the Facebook numbers as Black Stars assistant coach and Ghana U23 head coach Ibrahim Tanko joined the viewers.

Many popular football figures including the controversial former Asante Kotoko assistant coach Isaac Boateng popularly known as the Grand Ayatollah Adade Boateng have all lauded the innovation from the capital club.

Hearts of Oak staged a comeback to win the tie 2-1 as Christopher Bonney stepped up to convert a first-half penalty to level matters for Kim Grant’s men after Albert Hammond had fired the Crabs into the lead.

Abdul Manaf Umar Gumar latched on to a Christopher Bonney intelligent pass to finish off and sealed the points for Hearts.

Tanko, who is in charge of selection into the Ghana U23 side would obviously monitor the performance of his goalkeeper Richmond Ayi while manned the posts for Hearts while he also kept tabs on left-back William Dankyi.

Trio Manaf Gumar, Michelle Sarpong and Christopher are all under the category that qualifies them to play for the U23 and it in unclear whether he seized the opportunity to monitor their performance.
