Nkrumah was however on target in the 34th minute to score the only goal of the match after receiving a neat pass from Kufuor.

Obed Owusu of All Blacks nearly found the equalizer for his side but also missed narrowly in the 58th minute.

Nkrumah who was adjudged the best player of the match after the game had an opportunity to increase Kotoko’s goal tally in the 72nd minute but wasted it to the annoyance of their numerous fans.
