Swedish tactician Tom Strand made a hero’s announcement of his latest appointment at Tarkwa as Medeama SC rout the Black Meteors 3-0 in a friendly match.
The player line up for the Yellow and Mauves was a dominant first team players and the appearance of home boy Hans Kwofie indeed indicated that a new man is in charge,much to the delight of fans unlike the chide Prince Owusu faced when he selected a youthfully dominating new players in their home defeat to division one side Sekondi XI Wise in November.
Diminutive winger for Meteors, Maxwell Bako produced the first sensation in the game when run past his opponents but his curler hit the near post as Muntari Tagoe watched the ball unmoved in his post. Hans Kwofie’s volley was parried by Rashid Seidu before Shafiu Fatau forced a save from Muntari from a free kick.
With a minute to go for the break,Philip Asweh put the home side ahead to complete a passing pattern from.his teammates.
It took four minutes into the second half for Medeama to double their lead. Kennedy Boateng sends in a shot on the swivel in the box beating the diving hand of Seidu.
Seidu was however swift to save a near post shot from Francis Addo moments after the goal.
Nathaniel Asamoah then got his fans to go gay when he calmly finished off a through pass from Malik Akowuah four minutes after the hour mark.
Malik Jabir brought on Eric Ofori Antwi to replace Seidu in post and his overall six substitutions stabilized the Olympic team yet the exhaustion of three friendlies in three days (Goldstars and Hasaacas) were obvious as they battled to failure for redemption.
