In a fate of illtreatment of a terrible curse,a tremendous evil eye to the gods of football after a violent act on Peter Muduhwa,life has never be the same to the Dynamos prolific striker Epoupa.
The Cameroonian international forward Entouba Epoupa Christian Joel,the Dynamos striker who was on song since he joined the glamour boys has gone goal shy since his controversial disputed goal against Highlanders in October the 10th where the match ended in a 1-1 draw at Rufaro stadium in Harare.The Cameroonian was shown the exit,redcarded after headbutting the Bosso tough defender Peter Muduhwa in retaliation when a corner kick for Dynamos was about to be taken.It was controversy after controversy with the ZIFA President Mr Philip Chiyangwa sending shock waves following the incident rescinding the red card but unfortunately the PSl stood their ground denouncing the decision by the ZIFA boss.
One would wonder,what had happened to the striker,was the red card which was full of controversy that brought the bad omen to the young man Epoupa,was the frustration inflicted to him by Peter Muduhwa made him a mere ordinary striker which made him lose hope,confidence and concentration.
Africancontroversy, beliefs,taboos, hullobaloo,horrendous and juju come into effect in this moment,was Epoupa bewitched!
The Cameroonian scoring rate prior to the whole shame,incidence was so amazing.No doubt,every soccer fan believed that he was going to run away with the golden boot award.
He was the earlier pacesetter with 11 goals after the departure of the Bantu Rovers talisman Bukhosi Sibanda to South Africa who had 10goals.Epoupa was then silenced by the Black Rhinos hitman Lot Chiwunga with 12 goals so far and the bulldozing Caps United forward Dominic Chungwa who is now the favorite to clinch the 2017 golden boot award with 3 games left before the season end.Dominic Chungwa has now scored 15 goals,3 ahead of Lot Chiwunga.
Epoupa has become a pale shadow of himself as he was known as a perfect player with power,speed,intuition technical skills and quickness.
A jaw dropping player. All that was brought down to earth by the Highlanders steady tough tackling newly elevated appointed skipper Peter Muduhwa.He made the terrain easy to tackle to all defenders against the fierce striker Epoupa.Epoupa made himself an ordinary striker by his violent act (headbutt) degrading his status too.Its high time for the player (Entouba) to forget about the past and concentrate on the field of play to finish the league strongly although mathematically it might be difficult to catch up with the current leading goal scorer Dominic Chungwa unless miracles happens.
At this stage of the competition such players are man marked to disturbilise the teams attack from the main attacker.
