Glorious Accra Hearts of Oak the only Ghanaian representative in the ongoing CAF champions league tournament ended their campaign for glory after a distasteful defeat in their second leg tie against Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco.
The Hearts of Oak gaffer nicknamed ‘Kofi Yesu’, proved his worth during the Ghana Premier league season winning the ultimate and seeing his side win the second trophy, the Mtn FA cup.
Accra Hearts of Oak gave a good account of themselves during their first leg tie at the Accra Sports Stadium winning WAC of Morocco by a loan goal.
Its was all praise for the Phobians but the goalkeeper’s trainer for WAC Coach Al-Miskin after their defeat to Accra Hearts of Oak stated, “This loss is not a problem for us at all because we know we can overturn this results come Sunday in Casablanca, Morocco.”
Wydad Athletic Club kept to their promise in their bid to overturn their loan goal deficit by dismantling Accra Hearts of Oak right from the start of the first half.
In the first 8′ of the game, WAC had a two goal lead with Hearts of Oak lost in tactical play. All aerial duels were lost to the home team and their pace were unbearable for the Phobians.
Mistimed tackles, passes and sloppy loss of possession to WAC in the centre perimeter gave WAC an urge over the visitors.
Before the whistle for the end of proceeding to the first half, Accra Hearts of Oak had conceded 4 unanswered goal.
Their struggle to keep possession continued in the second half where they conceded two more goals to make it 6-0 and 6-1 on aggregate.
With time fast spinning and Hearts of Oak in a desperate need for a comeback, Patrick Razak pulled one back but was not enough to see the Ghanaian representative qualify to the next stages of the competition.
It ended 6-1 in favour of WAC and 6-2 on aggregate.
