1ST 16TH FINAL OF THE CONFEDERATION CUP / APEJES FA - ASEC MIMOSAS: 1-0: :

THE QUALIFIED MIMOS

Match winners go home, the yellow and black of the ASEC Mimosas lost (1-0) Sunday in Yaoundé, in front of the APEJES. If the academic of Mfou saved the honor,Mimos, qualify for the second 16th of this 14th edition of the Confederation Cup final.

The challenge was huge. Reassemble the liabilities of the two goals conceded in the first leg and qualify. The APEJES is there tried without success. Oumarou SOKBAcoach had promised him. In front of their audience, the academicians of Mfou gave their all. All unsuccessfully. Forced by a team of ASEC Mimosas in placeASEC qualified thanks to experienced the morale of steel players. Their qualification is entirely deserved. I‘m disappointed in the behavior of some of my players who played the fear in my stomach. Otherwise how can we understand no match ofthe first half that contrasts with our second half? Oumarou SOKBA thinks so well sayAs in lack of success offensively, notably by Aristide BANCE (12th min, 56th, 81st and 87th), Christian NOUGBELE (18th min) and ANGBANDJI Christian (35th minute), Gigi foals have been supportive in the effort. The rear guard led by TA Akassou, KOANDA Souleymane and GLOUDUEU Baresi was able to repel the offensives of the APEJES. The only moment of deconcentration intervenes in the 85th minute. A corner well executed and concluded the head by Mbekeli NGOM. From this moment, Cameroonians, since the return of locker room pushing, could begin to dream. But Hervé KOFFI, the Mimosas goalkeeper came out the big game to destroy the repeated assaults of the academic of MfouThe captain OLIH Jacques had good reason to say; “We tried to push but ASEC was good place”, the qualification is played in Abidjan.
