2015 Workers Cup Game 3 Round-up

The match was played at  Al Wakrah Stadium in front of more than 4200 supporters, this game was a decider to who would qualify from group D.  With Amana second and on four points and AALCO with 3 points, AALCOS only hope of qualifying would be to win this match.

The game was kicked off knowing that Mowasalat already won their game against HBK, both teams were therefore aiming for the second place in group D.

Both teams were playing a defensive game, trying to be as cautious as possible. Last year’s bronze winners Amana, were a big threat in the first half, but the first half ended scoreless.

Two minutes after the second half kicked off, Gyamfi Amanas number 10 scored the goal of the round. Shooting from outside the box,  Gyamfi shot left no chance for Aalco`s keeper. The noisy crowd erupted in the stadium and hoped the game would end soon to guarantee them a well-deserved qualification with a fantastic goal.

AALCO`s Bahadur was all over the pitch, trying to find an opening to score that precious goal but without any luck. However he was awarded with the man of the match award.

Amana moves onto the play-offs and takes on Midmac Contracting on Friday March 27.
