    this news is not complete, according to report Ramon scored twice. a penalty and a solo effort goal

  • Just when his team needed a much needed lift to see off L’hospitalet yesterday, cometh the hour cometh the man cometh Ramon Azeez!

    The Under 17 World Cup silver medal whipped a glorious cross from outside the 18 yard box which curled its way to Ramos who buried his shot from close range as Granada won 3:2.

    For his efforts, Azeez, who played for the duration of the match, was rated 7.3 out of 10.

    He had 85% pass accuracy with 8 crosses and 9 long balls attempted with 1 shot at goal blocked.

    The box-to-box midfielder has featured 12 times for Granada this season in the league with 2 goals to his name.

    His fine form has aided the Andalusians move to top half of the league table, for a team making a return to La Liga.
