Hearts of Oak Arrive In Morocco Ahead Of Wydad Encounter

The 24 players of Hearts of Oak, together with members of their technical team, have touched down at the Mohammed V International Airport, ahead of the second leg of their CAF Champions League encounter.

Hearts, who made the trip to Morocco by making a transit in the Gulf state of Dubai, will be looking to complete the job they started in Accra.

In the first leg, Hearts beat Wydad by a single goal, to gain a slight advantage, and despite their first-leg win, they recognise the challenge ahead.

“They bring in Ghana here, we saw what happened. One thing I believe is when we put in hard work [and] comport ourselves as we did in Ghana here, we are going to carry the day. But I believe in us, we believe in ourselves, the oneness, the understanding.

“If you were privileged to interview one of the WAC players, they will have certified that ‘yes, I’m playing with one of the biggest clubs in Africa’. So we going there I know it’s going to be tough,” Robert Addo said to Joy Sports.

Nonetheless, Hearts have had their difficulties somewhat lessened by CAF, as the confederation directed for the game to be played behind closed doors.

JS Saoura Knock Out Hearts of Oak In 4-0 Defeat

Hearts of Oak’s hope of playing in the group phase of the CAF Confederations Cup has been crashed out after losing 4-0 to JS Saoura.

The reigning Ghana Premier League champions were hosted by the Algerian side in the second leg playoffs.

The Phobians last weekend defeated the opponent 2-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium when the first leg of the tie was played.

With that advantage, Hearts of Oak were hoping to avoid a humiliating result to advance to the group stage of the CAF inter-club competition.

Unfortunately, a disastrous performance from the Phobians has seen the side losing 4-0 at the end of the 90 minutes.

The result means that Hearts of Oak have been defeated 4-2 on aggregate by JS Saoura and hence cannot progress to the money zone of the CAF Confederations Cup.

The Ghanaian giants will return home and turn attention to the Ghana Premier League where they are yet to record a single win after playing four matches this season.

2022 WCQ: FIFA Throws Out South Africa’s Protest Over Ghana Defeat

2022 WCQ: FIFA Throws Out South Africa’s Protest Over Ghana Defeat

Fifa has ruled an appeal from South Africa relating to a decisive 2022 World Cup qualifying match against Ghana is inadmissible.

Bafana Bafana had claimed they were “robbed” after their 1-0 defeat last month, with the only goal in the game scored from a first-half penalty.

The South Africa Football Association (Safa) included allegations of “match-fixing, match manipulation including corruption and bribery” when it lodged a complaint with football’s world governing body.

South Africa had needed a draw to reach Africa’s World Cup play-offs, but the result meant Ghana progressed at their expense on goals scored.

Safa president Danny Jordaan later claimed there was a betting spike during the qualifier, which took place in Cape Coast on 14 November.

Meanwhile, an appeal by Benin about substitutions made by DR Congo in another crunch qualifier on the same day has also been thrown out.

Fifa’s disciplinary committee declared both protests inadmissible as they did not meet relevant requirements – but also added the decisions are subject to appeal.

While Fifa referred to its Disciplinary Code and the regulations for the World Cup qualifiers, it did not offer the exact reasons for the rulings.

It means, as it stands, that Ghana and DR Congo will be in January’s draw for the African World Cup play-offs, with two-legged ties to decide the continent’s five representatives in Qatar set to be played in March.

“We have received the decision without details and will request the reasons [from Fifa] and consider our options,” Safa chief executive Tebogo Motlanthe said in a statement on Friday.

Benin’s protest concerned their 2-0 defeat by DR Congo – a result which saw the Leopards qualify ahead of Benin, who had needed a win to advance.

The appeal was about the fact that DR Congo made a total of four substitutions across four windows during the match.

Under current Fifa regulations for international games, teams are allowed to make up to five substitutes but only during three windows in the game.

GFA Postpones Match Between Hearts Of Oak And Asante Kotoko

The Ghana Football Association has announced that the Ghana Premier League Match Day 7 fixture between Accra Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko has been rescheduled.

Information gathered by GhArticles.com indicates that the rescheduling  of the match is due to the itinerary of Hearts of Oak in respect of the 2nd leg of the CAF Confederation Cup play-off tie against JS Souara which makes them unable to return in good time to honour the fixture.

The Ghanaian Champions are expected to return home on Friday, December 10, 2021 – making it impossible to play the match on Sunday, December 12.
