Photos: Pitch Invader Steals Show As Ghana Beat South Africa

With some few minutes left to end the Ghana and South Africa clash, a Ghanaian supporter made it a reality, the Ghana pitch Invader.

On the 83rd minute whilst the Black Stars were cruising on a 2:0 lead against the Bafana Bafana, a Ghanaian supporter transformed to a pitch invader, jumped unto the pitch, with the mission of just having fun.

Contrary to other pitch invaders who run to their favourite player for a hug or just a touch, this unidentified fan took delight in making security personnel on duty chase him around the stadium.

Seemingly running faster than light, the excitement was cut short after he was conglomerated by an avalanche of officials.

Who is Awal Suleman, aka London?

Awal Silumam a 25-year-old Nursing student at the Nalerigu College of Nursing in the Northern Region was the man who invaded the Cape Coast stadium when the Black Stars beat Bafana Bafana 2-0.

Mr. Suleman was said to be a 400m runner at Apam Senior High School.

No wonder he showed a great combination of speed and endurance to evade arrest for as long as he did.

Awal has also been confirmed a Chelsea fan, and he spotted the Chelsea 3rd kit to pull off the stunt.

But Why Did he ran onto the pitch?

Apparently, before the game, Mr. Suleman had predicted Ghana would win 2-0 and told close friends that if that happened, he would pull out a crazy celebration.

When it became clear his prediction was spot on towards the end of the game, he celebrated in grand style.
