Asante kotoko SC recorded a well deserved 3-0 win over Techiman Eleven Wonders to put aside any rumors of crisis within the team with two beautifully crafted free kick goals from former Techiman Eleven Wonders attacker Fatawu Shafiu.
The sharp shooting centre forward made light work of the eroded pitch with monstrous free kicks to set the teaming fans into frenzy mood despite the gallant nature of the host.
CK Akunnor’s side headed into the fixture on the backdrop of a 1-0 defeat in Tarkwa with many raising doubt as to whether has settled in post CAF Confederation Cup era.
A lovely start to the game eventually yielded dividends in a spectacular manner thanks to an individual brilliance from Abdul Fatawu Shafiu.
The former Eleven Wonders and Inter Allies attacker unleashed an explicit free kick just over 30 meters away from the post straight into the back of the twine with only 20 minutes played in the game.
The visitors came close to making it 2-0 lead but for desperate defending from Eleven Wonders on the day.
Inspired with his opening goal in the game, Fatawu repeated the dosage from same spot, same technique and into same destination inside the net to give Kotoko a commanding 2-0 lead in the game with 15 minutes to recess.
Young left back, Evans Owusu, drafted as a result of the injury prone nature of Asante Kotoko defender, made it 3-0 with a deft strike on the hour mark to end the game as a contest.
Akunor cushioned his lead with the arrival of Owusu Doglas for Stephen Nyarko and Kwame Boahene for Abdul Fatawu Shafiu in the closing embers of the game.
