Aduana Stars head coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi believes his side played very well against Asec Mimosa in the CAF Confederations Cup but didn’t take their chances.
The Ghanaian Champions were beaten 2-0 at home- the first time in their continental campaign- by the Ivorians thanks to first half goals from Gbagnon Anicet Badie and Braciano Ta Bi.
Anicet Badie scored from the spot in the 24th minute before Braciano Ta Bi doubled the lead few minutes to half time.
The home side who were missing 8 of their top players could not recover as they succumbed to their first ever defeat at the Nana Agyeman Badu park in their African campaign.
Kenichi Yatsuhashi blames the defeat to their wastefulness in front of goal.
“We played much better and created a lot of chances which we could have scored. But, I think we had more chances in general but they were able to score two goals and they went away with that,” he said in a post match interview.
Aduana Stars chances of reaching the quarter finals of the competition has now been dashed with the defeat to Asec Mimosa.
This is however, the first time the club has reached the group face of the competition.
