Edmund Addo is very delighted to have played against multiple European champions Real Madrid in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday night.
He has seen his stock rise rapidly in the last 24 hours especially at home in Ghana after his impressive performance for his side FC Sheriff Tiraspol.
In an interview with godfred.substack.com before the match, Edmund Addo, expressed his excitement to play against the Los Blancos describing it as a blessing.
"For a kid who only played colts football in Ghana to appear against Real Madrid in the Champions League? I feel blessed. I am living that dream and I thank God."
He was a key cog as his Moldovan minnows caused a huge upset on Tuesday evening after beating 13 time European Champions Real Madrid 2-1.
Sheriff took the lead against the run of play with a header from Jasurbek Yakhshiboev. Karim Benzema equalised for the 13-time European champions with a second-half penalty before Thill won the match in the 89th minute.
Real had 31 shots on goal and 11 on target while keeping 76 per cent possession and winning 13 corners, while the Moldovan side had only four attempts, scoring two of their three shots on target.
The win means the Moldovan minnows are now top of Group D with 6 points after two matches played in the Uefa Champions League.
Addo completed 92.3% of his 13 passes in the game, the highest percentage of any player who completed more than two passes for the away side.
He also completed two of his long passes while he won two tackles and made two interceptions while making one clearance and was fouled twice.
The midfielder who was raised on the streets of Chorkor in Accra is yet to be capped by Ghana despite his exploits.
