Even Brazil was humiliated 7-1 by Germany – Alhaji Akambi fires back

Accra Hearts of Oak

Hearts of Oak conceded two visits to Algeria

The club was humiliated by two Algerian teams

Alhaji Akambi believes the defeats are not the end of clubs

Board member of Accra Hearts of Oak Alhaji Brimah Akambi has hit back at critics, urging them to stop blaming the club because "even the almighty Brazil were humiliated 7-1 by Germany” in the World Cup.

Hearts of Oak exited the CAF Confederation Cup after suffering a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Algerian side JS Saoura.

Prior to that the Phobians were humiliated by Wydad Club Athletic after losing 6-1 to the Moroccans in the CAF Champions League.

The defeat means the Phobians have conceded as many as 10 goals in two away games in their African campaign.

However, according to Alhaji Akambi, Hearts of Oak are not the first team to lose by a huge margin in football.

He said, “Even the almighty Brazil were humiliated 7-1 by Germany and when that happened, did Brazil stop playing football?”

Alhaji Akambi explained that losing by a huge scoreline is not the end of the world hence the club will bounce back.

"In football, there are three outcomes. Win, draw and defeat. So defeats are normal in football. We didn’t like the result but it has happened and we have to move on,” Alhaji Akambi said on Fox FM.

Hearts of Oak were expected to play Asante Kotoko on matchday 6 of the Ghana Premier League but the game has been postponed due to the delay in flight for the team to return home after their game against JS Souara.
