In a historic moment for Medeama Sporting Club, forward Daniel Lomotey scored the team’s first-ever goal in the CAF Champions League.
The former WAFA star found the back of the net in the final minute of the first half, leveling the score for the Ghanaian champions at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Friday afternoon.
This significant goal came in response to Abdelraouf Benguit giving the Algerian powerhouse the lead through a controversial penalty in the 39th minute. Daniel Lomotey, who has prior experience with CR Belouizdad from his time with the Algerian club ES Setif, joined Medeama at the beginning of the current campaign.
The match took an exhilarating turn when Kamaradini Mamudu scored a stoppage-time winner for the Mauve and Yellows, securing their first-ever victory in the CAF Champions League.
Medeama had initiated their journey in the competition with a 3-0 win against record champions Al Ahly the previous Saturday in Cairo. While they managed to hold on for over an hour in that match, they conceded three goals after the 65th minute.
With this triumph, Medeama now boasts three points and aspires for further success in the CAF Champions League.
