The Insha Allah Boys failed to record their second straight win in their pre-season friendlies as they continue to fine tune for the new campaign
King Faisal’s preparation for the 2020-21 Ghana Premier League campaign was dealt major blow as they suffered a 2-1 home defeat to lower-tier side Wassaman United at the Paa Joe Park in Kumasi on Saturday.
After pipping Ebony FC 1-0 in midweek, coach Slavisa Bozicic paraded a much improved side this time with the aim of making it two wins in a row.
However, after a slow first-half which was dominated by poor passes and lack of opportunities from both sides, Samuel Opoku opened the scoring very early after the break against the run of play.
The forward connected a pass from his teammate on the left flank and went past King Faisal defenders before slotting the ball home.
Clement Adu ‘Okocha’ capped a nice display on the day with a fine finish few minutes later. The youngster turned his marker inside out before unleashing a thunderbolt from 25 yards to the admiration of few supporters present to double the visitors’ lead.
With ten minutes to full time, Ibrahim reduced the deficit for King Faisal but it was too little too late to stage a comeback as Wassaman defenders held on to record a victory.
King Faisal, who failed to record a single win after 14 games in the truncated season earlier this year, will open their account with a trip to Sogakope to battle West African Football Academy (WAFA) on November 15 before they hosts two-time league champions Aduana Stars at the Ohene Ameyaw Park in Techiman on November 22.
