Kotoko Were Lucky On Our Whip - Coach Ignatius Osei Fosu

Coach of Techiman Eleven Wonders, Ignatius Osei Fosu, believes his side played very well on Saturday in their match-day 18 clashes with Kumasi Asante Kotoko.

He believes Kumasi Asante Kotoko were lucky to escape with a draw as but for their missed chances it should have been an easy win for his side.

The porcupine warriors took the lead in the game with a sumptuous goal from Brazilian import Fabio Gama before the home side leveled through Samuel Boakye with nine minutes to the break.

Wonders had a goal disallowed for offside in the 43rd minute after Clement Boahene thought he had given his side the lead.

The home side were the better side for much of the second period as they had chances to have won the game but Michael Osei, Samuel Boakye and substitute Alex Asammoah Makwekwe all missed glorious opportunities.

Speaking during the post-match interview, coach Ignatius Osei Fosu said they let Kotoko off the hook despite they scoring first.

“We weren’t under pressure. The goal [Kotoko scored] was against the run of play which does happen in football,” Osei-Fosu told StarTimes in a post-match interview.

“I was talking about over-excitement that caused us but I feel that we could have defended it very very well.

“And that’s the only thing that I feel it’s negative about this game other than time I think we played fantastic football.

“In the last five minutes we could have beaten them like three but it’s normal when you have new players, changing the system becomes difficult but I know they will come (up),” he added

FIFA Officially Bans Chad From All Football Activities For Life

FIFA Officially Bans Chad From All Football Activities For Life

Global football governing body, FIFA has banned Chad from football until further notice. The decision was taken by the Bureau of the Fifa Council on Wednesday and takes effect immediately.

Note that in December 2020, Fifa had rejected a request from the country’s ministry of sports to dissolve the Chadian Football Federation.

On March 10, the minister for youth and sports released a statement to prevent the Chadian Football Association, FTFA, from performing its obligatory duties due to a dispute between both parties.

CAF then disqualified Chad from the Africa Cup of Nations qualification race, just a few days prior to their fixtures against Namibia and Mali, following the sport Minister’s actions. FIFA has now waded in, banning the country henceforth.

FIFA says the ban was as a result of government interference in the football operations of the African country but announced that the suspension will be reversed as soon as the relevant government decisions have been revoked.

“The Bureau of the Fifa Council decided to suspend the Chadian Football Association (FTFA) with immediate effect due to government interference,” a statement from the Fifa website read.

“The suspension was prompted by the recent decisions of Chadian government authorities to permanently withdraw the powers delegated to the FTFA, establish a national committee for the temporary management of football and seize control of the FTFA’s premises.

“The suspension will be lifted once the relevant government decisions have been repealed and the FTFA and its management, led by president Moctar Mahamoud Hamid, have confirmed to Fifa that the FTFA premises are again under its control.”
