Nuhu Fuseini is optimistic of Ashanti Gold’s needed qualification in Algeria against MO Bejaia in the reverse fixture of this year’s CAF champions league.
A 60th minute goal from Joshua Tijani was enough to secure a 1-0 win for the Miners at the Len Clay sports stadium on Sunday.
And Nuhu Fuseini who played an instrumental role in the Miners’ slim victory is confident his team will qualify in Algeria.
“I have had the opportunity to play for the local national team so it wasn’t any big game for me. The result was God’s will, so am not disappointed,” Nuhu said.
“I believe we will qualify in Algeria. M.O Bejaia only came here to defend to rely on counter attacks.
“Next two weeks when we play the second leg tie they will surely open the game. We are sharp and smarter than them, so we will also capitalize on that against them in Algeria.
“The game was a tactical game, the Crabs came to defend a typical Italian style, but we managed to score a goal.
“They will have to score two goals at home and when we travel to Algeria we won’t give them that opportunity.”
