    Background: GHANA'S CHAMPION SOCCER TEAM, THE KUMASI ASANTE KOTOKO, WERE HELD TO A ONE-ONE DRAW ON SUNDAY (15 OCTOBER) BY DJOLIBA, THEIR MALIAN COUNTERPARTS, IN A SEMI-FINAL OF THE AFRICAN CLUBS' CHAMPIONSHIPS. THE MATCH WAS PLAYED ON KUMASI'S HOME GROUND, THE KUMASI SPORTS STADIUM IN THE CAPITAL OF ASHANTI PROVINCE.

    KOTOKO, SPORTING AN ALL-WHITE KIT, WERE THE FIRST TO ATTACK, BUT AFTER ABOUT 15 MINUTES OF PLAY, THEIR PACE BEGAN TO SLACKEN, AND THE MALIANS TO SHOW THEIR FORM. HOWEVER, ALTHOUGH THE TEAMS KEPT UP A LIVELY GAME, NEITHER HAD MANAGED TO SCORE BY HALF-TIME.

    ONCE THEY ESTABLISHED THEIR PACE, THE MALIAN TEAM PROVED THE MOST AGGRESSIVE, KEEPING THE KOTOKO DEFENCE ON THEIR TOES. BUT THE FIRST GOAL OF THE MATCH FELL TO THE HOME TEAM. IT CAME IN THE FOURTEENTH MINUTE OF THE SECOND-HALF - A BEAUTIFUL GOAL SCORED BY OSEI KOFI, KOTOKO'S INSIDE RIGHT. POSSIBLY TO ADD TO THE CONFUSION, KOTOKO WERE NOW PLAYING IN WHITE TOPS AND DARK SHORTS.

    RAIN STARTED TO FALL IN THE LATER STAGES OF THE MATCH, WHICH MADE BALL CONTROL RATHER DIFFICULT. HOWEVER, SUMMONING THEIR ENERGIES, THE MALIANS MANAGED TO NEUTRALISE THE KOTOKO LEAD WITH A GOAL OF THEIR OWN IN THE FINAL MINUTES.
