Kotoko players in a jubilant mood
Asante Kotoko fought from a goal down to beat
Karela United 4-1 on penalties to lift the Normalization Committee (NC) special
competition in Kumasi yesterday.
Emmanuel Osei Baffour fetched the opener for the
visitors in the 49th minute, and Kotoko had to wait till the 66th
minute to cancel the lead through Abdul Safiu from the spot.
After the equaliser, Kotoko came close on few
occasions to get the lead, but missed in all attempts.
The win in the NC Tier I competition hands the Porcupine Warriors ticket to represent Ghana in this year’s CAF Champions League competition.
