‘I’m Still Haunted By My Penalty Miss’

Asante Kotoko captain Amos Frimpong has stated that his penalty miss against CARA Club in the first leg of the preliminary stage of the CAF Confederation Cup is haunting him.

The Porcupine Warriors got off to a flying start in their African campaign after edging out Congolese outfit CARA Club at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in the first leg of the preliminary round of the CAF’s second-tier club competition.

The MTN FA Cup holders were awarded four penalties in the game by Sengalese referee Issah Sy, missing three before striker Yakubu Mohammed came off the bench to convert the very last one to win the match for his side.

According to Frimong, who fluffed his line from 12-yards, says he is still haunted by the miss.

“I still don’t know how i failed to score from the spot last Sunday,” Frimpong told Asempa FM.

“After the game i watched my kick again and my strike was too poor. We missed our first kick and getting another penalty was important but i let my team down by missing it,” he added.

The return encounter will come off in a fortnight time in Congo.
