Ghana's Africa reps admit wastefulness



Scoring has come under the spotlight for Kotoko, who could have scored at least ten, and Edubiase should have had a minimum of three strikes in their respective games.

Both teams admit to conversion being quite a problem.

For Kotoko coach Masud Dramani, the 7-0 win was flattering but was quick to point to profligacy being a sore point. "It is a good win but we need to improve on our striking," he said after the game.

The very decent turnout left the Baba Yara Stadium glad following a brace from Kofi Nti-Boakye and strikes from five others, however the tendency to miss open chances worries the gaffer.

"We could have scored more goals had it not been our inability to finish off some of our moves."

Chief Executive of Edubiase, Abdul Salam Yakubu, also spoke of his disappointment with his side for several glaring misses. He noted that the win was good, but not satisfactory.

"We won but we are not happy. We had many one-on-one chances, about four or five, but none were converted. I am disappointed in both the technical team and the players. We will go there and defend the one goal."

African competitions get tougher as teams move forward, a fact which is not lost on Kotoko's Dramani. "This is something we need to work on before the second leg."

That game will be in two weeks in Malabo and Kotoko are hungry for a better showing this year after their four year absence. Edubiase play in Brazzaville at the same time.
