Kotoko youth team suffer defeat against Benfica

Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko suffered a 3-0 humiliation on the hands of Portuguese giants Benfica in their opening game at the Blue Stars FIFA Youth Championship on Wednesday. 

Karim Zito’s were unable to stand the might of a talented Benfica youngsters who ripped them apart even before the end of the first-half, netting twice in the opening twenty minutes of the game.

Zito shuffled his cards after the break by introducing fresh blood but the Porcupets could simply not stand the might of an all-conquering Benfica side that had just won the European U-19 Championship in Barcelona two months ago.

Kotoko were chosen as the only club from Africa to compete at this year’s finals following their rating by IFFHS as the best club on the African continent.

FC Sion, FC Zurich, Benfica, Bayern Munich and Olympiacos are all competing at the finals.

    Come on guys. Three goals to nil is not so bad. This is a normal score in football. Because your team was not chosen you are hating. Let your team do well so thst next time they go and represent. Mtcheeew!

  4. Guys, pick yourselves up and dust yourselves for the next game. One defeat is not a humiliation. A 3:0 scoreline is common and sometimes happen in soccer. Mighty Bayern Munich was given a more severe walloping by Real Madrid. At the just ended CL final Athletico Madrid lost by 4 goals to 1. If this is the “all-conquering Benfica side that had just won the European U-19 Championship in Barcelona two months ago ” you don’t need to bow down your heads in shame. Gird yourselves up for the next game. This writer and many of your haters will choose to call this a humiliation but I don’t. Try to learn from your mistakes and fight well next time. We are behind you .
