Hearts of Lions Captain and defender Frank Akoto was on the scoresheet as the National U-23 side the Black Meteors beat second-tier side Star Makers FC 5-0 in a friendly at El-Wak Stadium on October 16, 2019.

Akoto is considered one of the best defenders in the country played as a right back on the day.

The ball-playing defender rose highest to meet a corner kick and beautifully planted the ball in the back of the net as he scored the team's 4th goal.
