Eric Bekoe (born December 10, 1986)[1] is a Ghanaian football striker. He currently plays for Secondi Hassacas.


In the season 2007/08, with a total 17 goals in 23 matches he became the "Goal King" (top scorer) of the One Touch Premier League and League Champion with Kotoko.[citation needed] He also won the Presidents Cup with them in the same year.

On December 6, 2008, Bekoe signed a four and half years contract with Egypt Premier League club Petrojet. He was set to join Egypt giants Zamalek, but instead Petrojet made a very quick move and the player welcomed it. He became the third non-Egyptian player for the club. His goal tally so far stands at 22 goals in 28 games in all competitions.

On 18 September 2012, Bekoe joined Berekum Chelsea on a two-year contract.[2]

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Ghana by coming off the bench in a friendly match against Mexico on March 26, 2008 and played in the first World Cup Qualification games of his country against Gabon and Libya. Bekoe has represented Ghana at youth level, a.o. at the 2007 Toulon Tournament.
