Sunday witnessed Asante Kotoko’s remarkable prowess as they secured a decisive 5-1 victory over Cornerstone, a team from a lower tier, during their second pre-season friendly match.
The team’s fresh addition, striker Kalo Ouattara, truly shone by netting two goals on the field.
Earlier that same Sunday morning, the Porcupine Warriors had settled for a 1-1 draw against Kharis S.A. However, their second preparatory match of the day, overseen by Prosper Narteh Ogum, showcased an unrelenting determination.
Shadrack Addo also managed to hit the mark, while a trialist named Tanko Mohammed made a noteworthy impact with a double score.
The acquisition of Kalo Ouattara from Berekum Chelsea has solidified his role as a prominent attacking asset for Kotoko in the approaching season. This reputation was solidified in part due to his extraordinary performance in the previous season, where he impressively scored two goals against the Reds in a league game hosted in Berekum. This exceptional display caught the attention of Ghanaian observers, resulting in his swift signing during the ongoing transfer window.
