Kotoko outplays Etoile to keep CAF Champs League dream alive

Two-time African champions, Asante Kotoko S/C, coasted home to a 2-0 victory over visiting Etoile Sportive du Sahel of Tunisia in a first leg preliminary fixture of the CAF Champions' League, at the Baba Yara Stadium, Kumasi, on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors unsettled their opponents with a goal just under one minute courtesy Augustine Okrah, whose free kick went straight into the net after Kenyan import, George Abege, was fouled outside the 18-yard box.

Etoile's goalie, Makrem Bediri, had no answer to saving the well-taken kick, and from this time to the 15th minute, the homers kept the Tunisian goal area boiling with incessant pressure.
