In football, the name ‘Yeboah’ carries a lot of weight.
When you think about scoring goals for Yeboahs, there’s a good chance your mind wanders straight to former Leeds United man Tony, who plagued the Premier League with some of the most brutal strikes ever seen between 1995 and 1997.
Tony is a human highlight and ended up in the history books with great goals against Liverpool and Wimbledon and set the standard for all future Yeboahs to live up to.
On his way into Saturday’s meeting with Gornik, Wisla Krakow winger Yaw Yeboah already knew himself. He had scored two goals in the last four matches and knew he had a good chance to add a third against one of Ekstraklasa’s fighters.
Yeboah’s side was 1-0 up at the break and crossed, but just three minutes after half time he chose to increase it a notch.
Yeboah picked up the ball at the edge of the box and pulled it up in the air and looked to see a Tony-esque volley, but he decided to play with his opponents just a little further.

He chopped the ball to his right foot when it landed and then started dancing around the defenders, drove left towards the village line and again looked like he was going to tear one over the box.
That shot still did not come when Yeboah instead chose to put down a defender with another blow inside, and just when you thought he would finally finish that shot, the 24-year-old decided to try two more defenders. .
He kept them away with brutal force and drilled the ball over the surface of the goal and ran away cheering as it lay into the back of the net.

It is the predilection for the spectacular that saw Yeboah transferred to Manchester City’s academy in 2014. He was told about a bright future and got the chance to take out his things on loan with Lille and FC Twente, but things did not work out and he ended up permanently in Spain four years later.
Since joining Poland in 2020, Yeboah has been a regular on the highlight roll, but the latest effort will require some topping.
