Impressive Porcupines: Today in history: Kotoko thrash Burkina Faso

Kumasi Asante Kotoko beat Stallions of Burkina Faso 3-1 in a friendly international soccer match played at the Kumasi Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Stallions were the first to score in the 30th minute through Dagano Moumouni, playing at the centre-forward, and held on to the lead until the 50th minute when Joe Louis equalised for Kotoko after Abedi Sarfo had squandered a chance in the 48th minute.

Substitute Micheal Osei increased the tally for Kotoko in the 62nd minute with a beautiful shot, which beat Diarra Ibrahim in goal for the Stallions.

Speedster Osei was on target again and this time from a goal mouth melee resulting from a corner kick awarded to Kotoko.

When the corner was taken a Burkinabe defender kicked it out but Felix Yeboah of Kotoko, returned the ball into the vital area of the visitors and Osei connected it into the net for the third goal in the 74th minute.

The Stallions made several incursions in the bid to reduce the tally but goalkeeper Louis Quainoo stood the test until class one referee Alhassan Brobbey from Asante-Mampong whistled for the end of the match.

Before the start of the match, a minute’s silence was observed for the Accra Sports Stadium disaster victims
