Accra Hearts of Oak’s dream of winning a domestic double this season came much alive after beating Medeama 3-0 on Sunday, August 1 at the Cape Coast Stadium in the semi finals of the MTN FA Cup.
The Phobians went into the game fresh from laying hands on the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League title for the first time in 11-years.
Having built a formidable side since arriving at Hearts of Oak from Medeama in a 3-year-deal, coach Samuel Boadu was bent on inflicting a defeat on his former side.
Midfielder, Benjamin Afutu rose high on the 11th minute to head home the Phobians first goal from the cross of Isaac Mensah.
The 2000 CAF Champions League winners never went to sleep, adding two goals from Isaac Mensah who capitalized on a goalkeeping error to notch home the second goal for the 2004 CAF Confederation Cup winners.
In form winger, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh slotted the 2001 CAF Super Cup Winners’ third and final goal from the penalty spot to put the game beyond the reach of the Mauve and Yellow.
Samuel Boadu talks about pure tactics and techniques leading to their win.
“I told you, it’s just a normal match that we are playing.
“In fact during the first half, they [Medeama] did well, they tried to confuse us but we used our technique and tactics to get all the three goals.” Samuel Boadu said.
The victory sets up a final clash against AshantiGold who eliminated Berekum Chelsea 4-1 at the Cape Coast Stadium on Sunday, Ausvust 1.
Hearts of Oak are eying a double this season having already qualified for the 2021/22 CAF Champions League by virtue of winning the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League.
