Former Black Stars player Raphael Dwamena has been laid to rest three months after he passed away.

The funeral was held at the Adjiriganor Astro Turf in Accra on Friday, February 16.

Raphael Dwamena’s funeral attracted former Black Stars players Augustine Arhinful, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, Ibrahim Tanko, Kwadwo Asamoah, Isaac Vorsah, and Sulley Muntari.

Ghana Football Association President Kurt, General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo, and Executive Council Member Eugene Nobel were present to pay their last respects to the man who scored twice in nine appearances for the Black Stars.

Dwamena was pronounced dead on Saturday, November 11, 2023 after collapsing on a football pitch during a League match in Albania. 


The Egnatia player suffered a heart attack during a League match between Egnatia and Partizani.

The 28-year-old ex-national star collapsed on the field in the 24th minute of the league game and passed away minutes later at the Kavaja hospital.

The former Red Bull Academy player represented Ghana 9 times and scored two goals.
