Powerful, fast and technically good. This sounds like a recipe for success. But youngster Christian Dankoh had to wait for opportunities at Bours after moving from Urædd.
Last year, under the management of Stig Hadl, the talent was mostly brought in from the bench, but this year he has taken a big step and enjoys the full confidence of coach Bors Magne Nielsen.
Against Fredrikstad 2, he started his third match in a row, and based on his performance so far, there is no reason to change forwards. Pors now has four straight wins in their division and Dankwah has made strong contributions alone at the top in every game. Now he also started scoring goals.
– It was my first time in the season, but now the account is open, Dunkoh grinned after the match.
Having the confidence that I have now is really fun. “I work hard in training to get better and do everything I can to keep the place,” he continued.
With Granit Shala and Kachi on the bench, it says a lot about the Dankwah site in the process of being built on the west side.
– It’s good that there is competition for places, but it’s not like I have to play or Granite plays. We can both fill different roles, so no problem. The young striker says I enjoy being a winger and an inside runner too.
Before the game against Fredrikstad’s young second team, many people envisioned an easy home win. However, it wasn’t done that way. Bors held out for a long time, but throughout the second half there was a class difference between the two teams and the hosts finally got a well-deserved 3-1 win.
We don’t play the best game we’ve played, but we win on a bad day. Dankoh says that’s what the best teams should do.
The start of the season was very good with four straight wins. Now it’s about driving, he continues.
His 1-0 score before half-time was actually the opposite of the course of play. It was Fredrikstad who dominated the pitch before the break.
– We win the ball and Fredrikstad loses balance. I see that (Simin) Thorsen sees me and there is plenty of room. I knew I was going to run away from the centre-back, so it was just a matter of putting the order in, says the 19-year-old of a clinical finish that propelled Borse into the lead after 24 minutes of play.
Sondre Lindgren Larsen received his second yellow card after the end of the match. Bourse’s centre-back went up to referee Marius Lien from Fossum and confronted him with something of the match, and Lien eventually pulled the red card. Lindgren Larsen did not want to comment on the incident to TA.
