Joachim Adukor (born 2 May 1993)[1] is a Ghanaian footballer who plays for OFI Crete in Greece.[2] He plays as a Central Midfielder, he previously played for Gefle IF in the Swedish top league and for Trofense in the Portugal Segunda Liga and AS Béziers (2007) in France

Club career[edit]

Adukor arrived at Gefle in July 2011[3] from Ghanaian side Emirates SC, but struggled to get much playing time in a side performing over-expectations in the 2011 Allsvenskan. After the winter break, Adukor returned for the 2012 Allsvenskan season as a member of the Gefle first-team squad and will play a larger role in their 2012 campaign.[4]

It has been reported that Adukor will replace compatriot Yussif Chibsah in the Gefle first-team for the start of the 2012 season.[5] He made his league debut for the club on 17 September 2012, coming on as a substitute in a 2-0 defeat to BK Hacken.[6] It is reported in Greece that PAOK is interested in Joachim Adukor and they are keeping a close eye on him

International career[edit]

In October 2011, Adukor expressed his wish to link-up with the Ghana national under-20 football team ahead of the 2013 African Youth Championship.[7] In June 2012, he was selected to join the squad for the forthcoming qualification campaign.[8] In May 2015 he was again invited to join the U23 national team for the qualifier games for the All-Africa Games and the Olympic Games.
