Hearts of Oak captain Fatawu Mohammed has expressed confidence in his side’s ability to surmount the challenge posed by Moroccan giants Wydad Athletic Club.
Ghanaian powerhouse Hearts of Oak will now come face to face with Moroccan giants Wydad in the 2nd round of the preliminary stages of the CAF Champions League after posting a 2-0 win over CI Kamsar from Guinea.
The Phobians will host the 21-time Moroccan champions at the Accra Sports Stadium in October 2021, before facing The Red Castle at the Stade Mohammed V in the return fixture.
Hearts captain Fatawu has told Benedict Kwadwo Mensah on Asempa FM the Phobians will overcome the Moroccan Botola side over the two legs.
“I’m very confident we will beat overcome them. We are very determined,” he told the Accra-based radio station.
Substitute Kofi Kordzi curled in an expertly taken free-kick from 20 yards before 19-year-old midfielder Salim Adams, who was introduced in the dying embers of the game, unleashed a thunderous drive from similar yards out to nail the coffin of the stubborn Guinean side.
