It thus appears that the maternal and paternal sides of the late Ghanaian footballer, Raphael Dwamena, may not be on the same page over matters relative to his unfortunate demise and issues thereafter.
In a Peace FM interview on Monday, November 13, 2023, the father of the late striker, Patrick Amoako Sefa detailed how he learned of the demise of his son.
He highlighted the family’s constant engagement with the Ghanaian wife of the late 28-year striker and the role she was playing in the family’s effort to fly the body home for burial and funeral rites.
While appealing for help from the Ghana Football Association to facilitate the movement of the body from Albania to the country, Patrick Amoako Sefa disclosed that the wife was the point of contact between the family and the Albanian authorities.
“We’ve spoken to his wife and she indicated that they were making provisions to secure a flight to bring the body to Ghana. We need help to bring the body to Ghana. We are appealing to the Ghana Football Association and all persons to help us bring the body to Ghana,” he said.
A day after making the disclosure, the mother, sister, and uncle of Raphael Dwamena appeared on Onua TV and gave an account of events that differs strikingly from that of Dwamena’s father.
The supposed uncle of Dwamena indicated that efforts to establish contact with the wife have proven futile.
He disclosed that the sister of Dwamena attempted to reach the wife on five occasions but all calls went unanswered.
The calls, he claims persisted until the wife allegedly switched off his phone, ending their hopes of getting first-hand information from someone close to the player in Albania.
According to the supposed uncle who claims to have discovered that Dwamena was living with his wife in Albania after the unfortunate incident, the agent of the late striker has been their liaison.
He disclosed that the player’s agent whom he refused to name has been feeding the family with information regarding happenings around the demise of the player.
“We only found out that his wife was staying with him after his death. This is because whenever we try to establish contact with her over the incident, she tells us she’s busy.
“When it happened the sister claims she tried getting in touch with the wife but all her five attempts were unsuccessful. She even switched the phone off on her. We were lucky to have heard from his manager who is now our point of contact there,” he said on Onua TV.
The 28-year-old Ghanaian striker died on Saturday, November 11, 2023, during an Albanian league match between his side Egnatia and Partizani.
Raphael Dwamena, who had a documented history of heart problems, collapsed on the field and passed away while being transported to the hospital in an ambulance.

‘We conceded a poor goal’ – Ghana coach Chirs Hughton laments defensive lapse in defeat to Comoros
Ghana coach Chris Hughton, did not mince words in his critique of his team’s performance following a 1-0 defeat to Comoros on Tuesday in the 2026 World Cup African qualifiers.
The Black Stars missed a chance to go top of Group I as they were beaten in Moroni.
The pivotal moment in the match came in the 43rd minute when Myziane Maolida capitalised on a solo opportunity, receiving the ball from the midfield and scoring.
Hughton, speaking in the post-match analysis, expressed his displeasure at the defensive lapse that led to the decisive goal.
“I thought Ghana were the better team,” Hughton stated, emphasising his belief in the team’s overall performance. However, his frustration was palpable as he criticized the conceded goal, considering it a missed opportunity to maintain control of the game.
“We conceded what we regarded as a poor goal to concede, and we were not able to capitalize on the chances that we had,” Hughton remarked, underscoring the team’s inability to convert scoring opportunities.
As a result of the defeat, the Black Stars remain at three points after two rounds of games, while Comoros ascends to the top of the group with four points from two matches.
Looking forward, Ghana’s focus will shift to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, scheduled for January 2024 in Ivory Coast. The team, under Hughton’s leadership, will aim to regroup and make a strong showing in the continental competition after the setback in the World Cup qualifiers.
Chris Hughton bemoans missed opportunities as Ghana fall to Comoros in World Cup qualifiers
Ghana coach Chris Hughton attributed the team’s defeat to Comoros in the 2026 World Cup African qualifiers to a lack of sharpness in front of the goal.
The Black Stars suffered a setback on matchday two in Moroni on Tuesday, November 21.
Despite Hughton’s belief that Ghana was the superior team for a significant portion of the match, the inability to convert chances proved costly. In his post-match analysis, the Irish manager acknowledged Comoros for their victory but emphasized his team’s dominance throughout the 90 minutes.
“Congratulations to Comoros for the victory. In my opinion over the 90 minutes, we were the better team. I thought Ghana was the better team,” Hughton stated, highlighting his team’s overall performance. However, he expressed frustration over a conceded goal that he deemed avoidable and the team’s failure to capitalize on scoring opportunities.
“So this was not a game where Comoros won this game comfortably. Over the 90 minutes, we were the better team, but unfortunately, we were not able to put away the chances that we created,” Hughton lamented, emphasizing the significance of missed opportunities.
The defeat prevented the Black Stars from ascending to the top of Group I, leaving them with three points after two rounds of games played. With their focus now shifting to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations scheduled for January 2024 in Ivory Coast, Hughton, and his team will aim to regroup and hone their finishing prowess to make a strong impact in the continental competition.
