CAF Confederations Cup: Kotoko defender Augustine Sefah remains positive despite defeat to Al Hilal


Asante Kotoko defender Augustine Sefah is positive on the final outcome of Asante Kotoko in the games regardless of the disappointing defeat to Al Hilal in their opening group game of the CAF Confederations Cup.

The Porcupine Warriors lost narrowly to the Blue Waves, with Waleed Bakheek’s 40th-minute goal proving the difference.

Despite the defeat in Omdurman, Sefah who was undeterred by their defeat believes the Reds will react positively in subsequent games.

“We have 5 more matches to go so we will put this loss behind us and reach out to win the rest of the matches.

“Its just the first game, significant but all hope is not lost. We will put ourselves together and come back stronger.” He said this in an interview with Oyerepa FM.

The record Ghana Premier League champions will return to Kumasi for the second group game against Zesco United, who were victors over Nkana on matchday 1.

The winners of the group stages will qualify for the quarterfinals of the competition, a consolation for their hard work.
