After squandering three penalties out of four penalties awarded to Asante Kotoko by Referee Issah Sy in the first league of the 2018 CAF Confederations Cup in the preliminary round held at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday, striker Saddick Adams has reiterated that they are poised to make history in the ongoing campaign.
“The team is poised to make history in Africa this season,” Saddick told Accra based Vision 1 FM.
“Missing a penalty yesterday l must confess l felt really bad but can’t say much because it forms part of the game.
“Sometimes as a player you scores but times it turns out to be the other way round, which is normal to every player like myself.
“But to be honest l wasn’t down at all throughout the game even though l had wasted a crucial chance. l still put up my best which finally paid-off in Yakubu Mohammed getting the team’s winner after a wonderfully executed penalty kick in the dying embers of the game.
“The team on the day was splashed with mere hard luck. If not for that CARA in anyway couldn’t stand the mighty efforts of Asante Kotoko,” he noted.
Quizzed how prepared the team is going into the return leg in Congo, he said, “We [Kotoko] go into every game as a team set to develop a winning mentality and our Confederations Cup second-leg game with CARA is no exception.
“As we’re in to rewrite the name Kotoko back to the good books of the African Confederations Cup,” he added.
