Ghanaians hail Kotoko players, coach after Zesco victory

Asante Kotoko's Wednesday victory over Zesco United of Zambia was greeted with excitement in many Ghanaian circles.

Following a defeat on matchday one of the group stage, the Porcupine Warriors bounced back with a 2-1 home triumph at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.

Kwame Bonsu and Emmanuel Gyamfi scored to send their side level on points with the other three teams in Group C.

The visitors' consolation, interestingly, came from their Ghanaian recruit Rahim Osumanu in the second half after danger man Jackson Were saw his first-half penalty saved by Kotoko's outstanding goalkeeper Felix Annan.
