Badu Warms Bench As Udinese Crash Out Of Europa League To Sackey's Liberec
Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu watched on helplessly as Udinese crashed out of the Europa League despite holding Slovan Liberec who had Ghanaian Isaac Sackey in their ranks to a 1-1 draw.
The Italian side has already suffered a shocking 3-1 home defeat to the Czech club in the first leg match a week ago.
Ghana midfielder Agyemang-Badu remained an unused substitute as fellow Ghanaian youngster Isaac Sackey played the entire duration in the draw on Thursday night.
Liberec had taken a 23 rd minute lead through Dzon Delarge to put the ties beyound the reach of the Zebrette.
Andrea Lazzari however cancelled out the lead in the 42 nd minute to give the visitors a glimmer of hope.
Francesco Guidolin's side were unable to build on the momentum gained by the equalizer – failing to score anymore goals to exit the competition.
Udinese now only have the Serie-A to focus on while Agyemang-Badu is presented with an opportunity to get over the disappointment by helping Ghana beat Zambia to progress in the qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup.
