A child destined to die won't survive, even in the pocket of Roman Father. That is the summary of Hearts Of Oak, the champions of Ghana, in their African campaign. After they sailed through a one-off game against Kamsar, things have never been the same. The Phobians have suffered same circumstances, same pattern and same disgrace.
In the CAF Champions League playoffs, they faced the WAC of Morocco. Hearts won the first leg at home by a lone goal. Hopes were raised for the away game as the boys played so well in the first encounter. There came the shocker of a lifetime. The Moroccan giant whipped the flower boys shamelessly 6-1. The disgrace was a scene no team could behold. Yet, they had another chance to make up for the mess. JS Saoura from Algeria in the CAF Confederation playoff was a manageable draw.
This time around, the Ghanaian club went all out and gave their opponent a 2-goal deficit to book a showdown in Algiers. The match ended few minutes ago and had an interesting outcome. JS Saoura loaded Hearts' basket with 4 goals without any consolation. For the second time, our continental rep bottles a home advantage. As if that's not painful enough, they also lose by huge, disgraceful margins.
When it's about others, it is easier to think it's simple. We hope they will learn from these two horrible experiences and try to do better anytime they are in Africa.
