Playing in Africa inter club competitions comes with monumental expectations. For a club participating in either CAF Champions League or Confederation Cup, officials and supporters gaze their sights on the ultimate, which is the trophy. This ambition resonates anytime the team takes to the field to engage an opponent.
This reflects the present situation of Ghanaian Champions Accra Hearts of Oak, as they come up against WAC of Morocco this Sunday. Their immediate target dwells on a group stage qualification. Pulling off that ambition will ignite passion for progress and the trophy.
Accra Hearts of Oak forward Daniel Afriyie Barnieh believes what happened last season lingers, but there is the need to show what they can do in the present moment. There are intentions of making the entire rainbow fraternity proud.
" It's not about our memory from last season. It's about showing who we are to the world, showing we will make everyone proud.”
It is breathtaking for a key player to alert what they have to do in the prevailing circumstance. Without a shred of doubt, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh walks onto the pitch on Sunday with a huge burden to turn up for the party. Coach Samuel Boadu will count on the Under 20 Afcon winner to take charge of affairs upfront and do the needful by scoring goals or carving chances for his colleague to score. Making everyone proud must be in consonance with remarkable and vintage performance worthy of qualification on match day.
Daniel Afriyie Barnieh further emphasized on how focus they are as the future depends on what transpires today.
“Because how we are in the future will be founded on how we behave today. We remain focused.”
Staying focus must largely reflect on proceedings especially when the going gets tough. Wydad Athletic Casablanca has a pedigree in the continental showpiece, hence the will to eliminate them will hinge on how focus you remain from Ghana to Morocco. The players have the opportunity to redefine what could happen in future.
The playing body are required to prove their worth by outplaying the opponent and scoring goals in the end. The stakes are high as the team looks forward to making it into the group stage of CAF inter club competition, hence no room for blunders.
With two days to the game, Accra Hearts of Oak are expected to be putting finishing touches to whatever plans and strategy they intend to embark upon on Sunday.
