Legon Cities FC hope of climbing out of the relegation zone was delt a wicked blow yesterday as the West African Football Academy [WAFA] beat The Royals 1-0 at the Red Bull Arena in Sogakope.
The Royals went on a talking spree prior to the game promising to win at least a point in Sogakope, yet they were all, but looking like a bull in a Chinese shop throughout the fisrt stanza as the soccer physicians [WAFA] controlled the lion share of possession whiles punching holes into Legon Cities backline.
After sapping out lots of energy from Legon Cities, Justus Torsutsey broke the deadlock in the 31st minute after ghosting his way into the eighteen yard box to put WAFA ahead.
According to coach Bashiru Hayford, he told his players to press hard going into the game but it became like a walk in the park for WAFA on matchday instead:
“I told the guys to press and fight hard because it won’t be an easy game.”
Legon Cities came from the break with a different approach altogether, attacking almost every space on the field and releasing Jonah Attuquaye at the least opportunity.
Asamoah Gyan replaced Issaka Mohammed in the dying minutes of the game, but the former Black Stars captain free kick from just outside the goal area missed the post by a whisker.
With the win, WAFA have leapfrog to the 6th position with 38 points whiles Legon Cities have slip to the 15th position with 26 points.
