Oti Akenteng eulogizes Aduana Stars performance against AS Vita

A member of the two-man CAF/FIFA liaison team, Oti Akenteng has lavished praises on Aduana Stars following their 2-1 win over AS Vita in the CAF Confederation Cup on Wednesday.

The Fire Boys recorded their first win of the CAF's second-tier competition after beating Congolese giants AS Vita a 2-1 on Match Day 3 courtesy goals from Bright Adjei and Yahaya Mohammed before Glody Muzinga grabbed a consolation for the visitors.

The victory did not come on a silver platter as preparations ahead of the encounter was thrown into a disarray following government's decision to halt football in the country in the wake of the Number 12 documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas - where some officials were captured on tape accepting bribes.

"Looking at our circumstances, I think Aduana Stars players did their best. Because it was a difficult game and the fitness level of players weren't good," he stated on Happy FM.

"Yahaya Mohammed was excellent yesterday. His fitness level was good compared to the rest of his teammates; he really worked hard to augment the fall short of his colleagues."

"Kenichi is a good coach and with good training I believe they will excel in their next match in Congo."

The win has lifted Aduana Stars to 3rd on the standing with four points after three games.
