Former Hearts of Oak playmaker Winful Cobbina enjoyed a flourishing debut in the UEFA Champions League as he played an influential role in KF Tirana’s 2-0 away win over Georgian side FC Dinamo Tbilisi Boris Paichadze Dinamo Arena on Wednesday evening.
Argentine midfielder Agustin Torassa handed the Albanians a first-half lead thanks to his effort during added time, while Marsel Ismailgeci sealed the win with his 86th-minute effort.
Thanks to this result, they will lock horns with Red Star Belgrade in the second qualifying round on August 26. The Serbian SuperLiga side that defeated Europa 5-0 in their first qualifier boasts Gabon’s Guelor Kanga, Ghana’s Richmond Boakye, Comoros’ El Fardou Ben and Cote d’Ivoire’s Sekou Sanogo in their ranks.
Cobbina, who played an influential role in the victory, will now have to gear up for another tough task ahead as they prepare to face the Serbian side.
