Striker Aguidi insists Hearts can eliminate Esperance despite heavy first leg loss

Hearts of Oak striker Foovi Aguidi is confident of overturning the huge deficit against Esperance in the return leg of their CAF confederation Cup playoff.

The Phobians were pummeled 4-0 at the Rades Stadium on Sunday night and are in danger of missing out on qualification to the Group stage.

Hearts, winners of the inaugural competition in 2004, will need to score five unanswered goals in the return leg in Accra on June 7.

It looks herculean but Aguidi believes it is a surmountable task.

“It is possible why not, its football. We can score five or six if we believe ourselves and we try and train,” the Togolese striker told Joy Sports.

“They scored here but we too we need to score in Accra and we will. We only have to correct our mistakes and listen to our coach. “.

Hearts will be seeking to draw inspiration from the “Miracle of EL WAK” in 1977 when they lost the first leg of the African Club championship quarter-final 5-2 to Zambian side Mufulira Wanderers overturned the result with a 3-0 win.
