Missed penalties can haunt Kotoko in return leg clash - Mohammed Polo

Legend Mohammed Polo says Asante Kotoko could rue missed scoring opportunities from the first leg when they travel to Brazzaville next week to face CARA for the CAF Confederation Cup return trip.

Kotoko were awarded four penalties but managed to convert just one in the slim 1-0 win at the Baba Yara Stadium.

''Kotoko won’t have it easy in Congo. I doubt if they’ll be able to handle the home support Cara will get,'' Polo told Happy FM.

''Missing three penalty kicks clearly shows the technical problem Kotoko is facing. Kotoko’s performance was nothing to write home about.

''Coach should concentrate more on training players on how to score goals because it’s a major problem in our football in Ghana.

''Kotoko will be intimidated in Congo. They had the opportunities here and they wasted it. Kotoko have to score real goals there. They won’t be awarded four penalties.''
