It has now been 5 weeks since Henok Goitom made a come back to his La
Liga team Almeria after an injury that has sidelined him for most of the
season. He gradually made a come back as a substitute under coach Hugo
Sanchez for the first two games of his come back where he did not perform as
well as he could have. Then the Almeria management decided to change coaches
as the former Mexico star player and later coach was let go. The
Swede-Eritrean star came in again as a sub for a few minutes in the first
game for coach Juan Manuel Lillo who debut with a win against Xerez. Last
week facing a strong Villarreal team at home, Almeria was on the brink of
losing their game when Henok Goitom who had only been on the pitch for 10
minutes after replacing Albert Crusat, muscled his way against Marcano of
Villarreal as the Villarreal defender tried to win back possession. Henok
Goitom went down in the penalty box to earn his side a PK and helped them
get a point with a tie.
*Henok Strikes his first goal of the season.*
This weekend Henok Goitom's second-half equaliser earned his 10-man team
Almeria a 1-1 draw at home against Primera Division Tenerife. Juanlu Hens
had given the visitors, the lead less than two minutes into the game but
Henok Goitom saved the day for Almeria, who had Pablo Piatti sent off the
game for two yellow cards.
Despite a tie Almeria continue their positive start under new coach Juan
Manuel Lillo, earning a point instead of embarrassing themselves by a loss
to a very weak team. Meanwhile Henok and Almeria will face Sevilla FC next
week. With 20 games left in the Spanish La Liga season hopefully Henok will
top his scoring record of last year when he played for Valladolid.
Meanwhile here below are the entire highlites of the game from Sunday. Enjoy
Henok’s beautiful goal and a couple of near misses.
