Hearts of Oak Crashed Out of CAF Champions League After 6-1 Mauling By WAC In Morocco

Ghanaian giants, Accra Hearts of Oak, have been booted out of the CAF Champions League after suffering a 6-1 hammering at the hands of Wydad Athletic Club.

The Phobians were battered at the Mohammed V stadium in Casablanca on Sunday, October 24, 2021 and will now drop to the CAF Confederation Cup.

The double winners lost the game 7-2 on aggregate and will now await their next opponent in the Africa’s second tier competition.

The Moroccans established their intentions as early as the fifth minute when Tanzanian forward Saimon HappyGod Msuva broke the deadlock.

Two minutes later, Wydad doubled their lead through midfielder Ayman El Hassouni before Achraf Dari headed home the third in the 20th minutes.

Thigs went from bad to worse for the Phobians when the Moroccans were awarded a penalty in the 40th minute, captain Yahya Gibran converted to make it 4-0 before the break.

Hearts coach Samuel Boadu made two quick changes after the break, replacing Caleb Amankwaa and William Dankyi with Salim Adams and Patrick Razak.

The substitutions did make any difference as the Rainbow club conceded the fifth after Ayoub El Amloud capitalized on a miscommunication by the Hearts backline.

Saimon Msuva added his second and his side’s sixth few minutes later. The Ghanaian champions managed to grab a consolation late in the game after Patrick Razak pulled one back.

Hearts of Oak lost the game 7-2 on aggregate, failing to make it into the group stages of the CAF Champions League and will now have to compete for a place in the CAF Confederation Cup.

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.
