Favourites Asante Kotoko was eliminated from the MTN FA Cup after losing 1-0 to city-rivals King Faisal at the Baba Yara on Wednesday, 29 December 2021 in the round of 64 tie.
Error-prone Andrews Appau gifted Faisal the equalizer after 26 minutes when Baba Yahaya capitalized on the defender’s mistake by blocking a pass to slot it beyond goalkeeper Ibrahim Danlad.
Kotoko came close to fetching the equalizer in the 38th minute but George Mfegue, handed another great opportunity, shot feebly in the hands of goalkeeper Frank Boateng.
Faisal nearly doubled their lead three minutes into the break but Mawuli Wayo’s effort was shielded by Mubarik Yusif.
Wayo had a lovely exchange between himself and Baba Yahaya.
Before the start of the second, Kotoko coach Prosper Narteh Ogum brought on Joseph Amoako for George Mfegue and Sheriff Mohammed was substituted by Christopher Nettey.
