JoeTex seeks 'divine' glory

CS Sfaxien's Ghanaian striker Joetex Frimpong is seeking divine intervention in his quest to score in the second leg of the African Champions League final on 11 November in Tunis. Frimpong netted the vital away goal for Sfaxien in Cairo to earn his side a 1-1 draw with reigning champions Ahly of Egypt in the first leg on Sunday.

The first-leg goal was Frimpong's third in this year's Champions League campaign for Sfaxien.

The striker already has two Champions League medals in his collection from his time with Nigerian club Enyimba, who won the titles in 2003 and 2004.

"Every time I play a match I wish to score a goal and God will help me get another one again. I'm expected to score because I'm a striker," he told BBC Sport.

He also recognises that the second leg will be tough.

"We have a better chance but it's not going to be easy, but we are going to try our best to be victorious," he said.

"It is very difficult to get a draw at Ahly, so we performed well."

Frimpong also enjoys support from more than just the Sfaxien fans.

"Ghana, Nigeria, all of them support me - because I am from Ghana and I stayed in Nigeria, so both countries support me."
