Ghana’s sole representative in Africa Medeama gave their hopes of reaching the semifinals of the CAF Confederation Cup a shot in the arm as they snatched a famous 3-2 victory over TP Mazembe.
Akwesi Donsu was at the right place at the right time to net the winning goal with Medeama destined to collect a point from the enthralling clash in Sekondi on Sunday.
The Mauves appeared to have sealed full points in the 70th minute when Moses Sarpong converted a spot kick to make it 2-0 after Enoch Atta Agyei had opened the scoring with a free kick.
Recently signed from Tanzanian side, Azam FC, Atta Agyei’s well-hit freekick slipped through the fingers of experienced Mazembe goalie Robert Kidiaba, but Mazembe hit back, levelling up in a space of five minutes, thanks to goals from Jonathan Bolingi Mpangi and Rainford Kalaba.
Yet, with less than a minute plus added time remaining, attacking midfielder Akwesi Donsu slotted home the winning goal to the delight of fans present at the Essipong stadium.
Medeama remain second, three points above rivals MO Bejaia and will need a draw in Algeria to seal qualification to the semi-final of the competition.
