CAF CL: Hearts Of Oak Beat CI Kamsar 2-0 To Set Date With WAC

on

Hearts of Oak beat CI Kamsar 2-0 to qualify to the next stage of the CAF Champions League.

The game which was played behind closed doors this afternoon saw the both teams match each other boot for boot, especially in the first half, one that ended goalless with few chances created.

Kamsar were on the front foot in the opening minutes of the game, creating some decent chances, but in most cases, were dealt with by the Hearts of Oak defense.

Back from recess, and with a goalless scoreline, both coaches made a couple of substitutions. This changed the tempo of the game especially midway into the second half with end to end action from both teams.

With ten minutes to end the game, Hearts of Oak threw more men forward, piling more pressure on the seemingly weary Kamsar defence who had been tough all afternoon.

In the 84th minute, substitute Kofi Kordzi broke the deadlock with a well taken freekick which beat the human wall and zoomed straight into the net.

The goal came as a big relief to the entire Hearts of Oak fraternity most of who watched from the comfort of their homes, following a directive by CAF to have the game played behind closed doors.

One soon turned to two in the 87th minute as another substitute, Salim Adams scored with a lovely volley after receiving a cross.

2-0 was how things ended at the Accra sports stadium with the Phobians qualifying to the next stage of the CAF Champions League.

They will next play Moroccan side WAC next month with the winner of both legs booking their place in the Group Stage, mostly referred to as the ‘money zone’.
