Medeama midfielder Michael Helegbe believes the side can make history by clinching the CAF Confederations Cup on just their first attempt.
The Yellow and Mauves are just two games away from making it through to the group stage of the competition where they face Congolese club AC Leopards.
Medeama are only making their debut African campaign by virtue of their success in last season’s MTN FA Cup.
The Tarkwa-based club have however impressed and are the only surviving Ghanaian club in African club competition this season.
Helegbe who only joined the club in the second half of the season believes the side can go on to make history for the club and Ghana football.
“This is the first time Medeama is taking part in the Confederation Cup, and as a player and as a group; our aim is to achieve history for the club and nation,” he said.
“We are working very hard, and it has been showing in our games.
“We are two games away from groups stage now, and I believe our focus and aim is still on course.
“As a player, you need to win a trophy for the club; yes we do talk about the Confederation Cup, and our aim is to work very hard and be in the group stage.”
