The Rainbows picked up a vital win to keep their good shape as they claimed a 3-0 win over Kumasi-based Asokwa Deportivo in a club friendly in the Ashanti Region.
Introducing Hearts of Oak’s line-up who featured in this morning’s warm-up game, Eric Ofori Antwi stood in the posts, Samuel Inkoom, Rashid Okine, Caleb Amankwa, and Robert Addo Sowah had a solid partnership at the back.
Eric Esso, Amankwa Baafi, and Fatawu Mohammed started from the midfield whiles the attacking role was occupied by Obeng Junior, Junior Kaaba, and Yassan Oautching.
Cameroonian forward, Kaaba proved to be a hero with his scintillating performance to give the Phobians the lead in the first half having scored in their previous encounter against Future Stars.
Back from the recess, they had what looked like an insurmountable performance to finish the game on a 3-0 lead through Samuel Inkoom, Isaac Mensah, and Junior Kaaba.
Winning the league and making an impact in the Confederations Cup competition is the Rainbow’s biggest dream. So far, coach Samuel Boadu is impressed with the progress of his team ahead of the new season which begins next week.
Hearts will line up against Ebony FC and Bibiani Gold Stars to wrap up their Kumasi tour on Sunday before their season opener against Aduana Stars in Dormaa.
