Fans on social media believe Bebe Cool’s Son, Alpha’s goal is Puskas Award contender!
He is still chasing his dreams of becoming a world soccer star and believe me with the focus, discipline and work rate he puts in, only the sky is the limit.
Yesterday, Wednesday Ssali Alpha was yet again given a chance to play for the Proline FC senior team, a club where he has been since he was a young child.
And guess what? The 17 year old scored an audacious and Outrageous goal past MYDA’s goalkeeper which might surely be one of the contenders to win the Puskas Award at the end of the season.
Alpha oozed out magic when he received the ball from a teammate, majestically beat to MYDA defenders with speed and unreal skill before send a powerful strike past the helpless goalkeeper with his right foot.
After scoring his first senior goal, Alpha who was visibly in high spirits ran like Usein Bolt to where his dad, Bebe Cool was standing and gave him a hug!
After the match, Bebe Cool shared the great news with his fans through his Instagram account.
“Great news as Alpha Thierry Ssali magnificently scores his first goal for proline football club during his second game in the Uganda Cup. Proline won 4:0 congz boys,” said Bebe Cool.
While fans on social media are convinced that effort is a sure-shot contender for Puskas, if Alpha does go on to win the accolade then he would become the first-ever African player ever to win it.
