Medeama SC drew 1-1 against Tanzanian side Young Africans at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi in MD3 of the CAF Champions League.
Jonathan Sowah put the Ghanaians ahead in the 27th minute from the spot kick.
Ivorian midfielder Peodoh Pacome Zouzoua equalised after pacing through the Medeama midfield and hitting a low shot that Felix Kyei had no antidote to it.
In the post-match conference, Evans Augustine Adotey defended his striker after he was asked about his performance.
“As a coach, I’m impressed with Sowah’s performance. The same players gave me the league trophy”, said Evans Adotey.
“He was fighting, he sometimes played as a lone striker, he attacked pretty well, and he dropped back to defend”, continued the coach.
Fans at the Baba Yara were not happy with Jonathan Sowah’s performance as some called for his substitution in the second half.
Medeama travels to Dar es Salaam to face Young Africans in MD4 next week.
