The Narrow Win
Accra Hearts of Oak set out to ‘wallop’ Wydad Athletic Club of Morocco.
Hearts of Oak, clearly, were in disarray as they played like a team without proper training and direction.
The scientific aspect of football was absent in their game plan. Though they scored one goal, it was not something worth worshiping because it was through sheer luck that they scored the goal.
WAC may not have exerted as much pressure as they were supposed to and that was not without a plausible reason.
One of the key players of WAC got injured during one of their training sessions. One more could not make the trip due to a similar reason.
You could say that WAC played with a depleted team. Accra Hearts of Oak ought to have utilized such a rare opportunity to score two more goals but as we all saw, they couldn’t.
WAC is expected to disintegrate Accra Hearts of Oak in Morocco when the Phobians travel to North Africa.
This narrow win today would not be enough to save Accra Hearts of Oak in Morocco. Morocco will be the end of the road for these loudmouths.
Still, ASU! WAC must succeed and they will qualify for the next round.
