Over the weekend, Albanian side KF Egnatia celebrated their historic triumph in the Albanian Superliga with a heartfelt tribute to their late star striker, Raphael Dwamena.

The team honored the memory of the talented Ghanaian athlete, who tragically passed away in November 2023, by holding aloft his jersey and photograph during their victory parade.

Dwamena’s sudden cardiac arrest during a match against Partizani led to his collapse on the pitch. Despite being rushed to Kavajë Hospital, he could not be revived and sadly succumbed to his condition.

His passing was a profound loss for the football community, and he was laid to rest in Ghana in early February of this year.

Before his untimely demise, Dwamena played a crucial role in Egnatia’s pursuit of their maiden league championship.

He scored nine goals in just 11 matches, making a significant impact on the team’s successful campaign.

Tragically, his pivotal performance came just weeks before his collapse on the pitch.

Dwamena’s career was marked by resilience and determination.

Despite previous heart complications, which led to doctors fitting him with a heart monitor in 2017, he continued to chase his dream of playing professional football.

His tenacity saw him complete nearly 200 competitive matches, amassing an impressive record of 98 goals and 42 assists at the club level.

On the international stage, Dwamena represented Ghana’s Black Stars, earning nine caps and scoring twice.

His contributions to both club and country are fondly remembered, and his legacy continues to inspire many.

As KF Egnatia celebrated their Superliga victory, the tribute to Raphael Dwamena underscored the deep respect and admiration the team and fans held for him, ensuring his memory remains a cherished part of their historic achievement.
