The west African giants are not done yet. The men of coach C.K Akonnor have gotten their campaign back on track after a 3 goal to Orange margin (3-0), over Zambian outfit Nkana F.C.
Revenge is sweetest while served cold, but don’t tell that to Fatawu Safiu, as he served a hot ‘dead ball’ that only became alive when it hit the back of the net in the 4 minute of play, and the flood gates became open. Emmanuel Gyamfi could not miss out on the act, as the striker showed pure attacking instincts to react to a loose ball in the 24 minute that saw fans erupt in joy, in Baba Yara stadium. The celebrations were not even over as Martwin Antwi showed why he is highly rated in the continent, striking the ball in an unorthodox way that bamboozled the goal keeper.
The first leg that ended 3-1 in favour Nkana now seems a tale told in the days of ancient empires, as Asante have breezed through and sit second after 4 matches, taken 6 points out of a possible 12.
Talk about change in fortune; Asante was threading on fine margins as they were bottom of the pile before this game, with 3 points but they are now second in the log over Nkana with goal difference and two points clear of Zesco United.
The porcupine warriors have been able to draw blood not once, but twice from twin Zambian brothers Zesco and Nkana.
Asante Kotoko would not surely give Al Hilal the red carpet reception when they come visiting in match day 5, Sunday, 10 of March 2019 as things get to boiling point in the CAF confed cup. Al Hilal leapfrogged Asante one to nil when the reversed fixture held on the 4 of February 2019.
