23.04.2004 LISTEN

Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club Limited left Air Force Base in Accra this morning for Angola for a crucial Champions league tie with AS Aviacao beaming in confidence.

In a pre~departure interview with SPACE FM, courtesy, Kofi Asare Brako of Peace Fm, the management and the entire playing body were unanimous in their call for the support of all Ghanaians.

The veteran striker, Emmanuel Osei Kuffour said he has lost none of the magic touch that saw him banging in eight goals to win the 2000 Champions League Goal King. He called for maximum support not only to Hearts but to all Ghanaians Clubs going into action over the weekend.

On his part, the skipper of the side, Yaw Amankwaa Mireku acknowledged the difficult nature of the game but said nothing would prevent them from advancing to the next stage of the competition.

When asked how the team would fare under the anticipated hostile partisan crowd in Angola, Dan Quaye replied; "we are determined to go all out irrespective of the venue of the match".

The self acclaimed Continental Club Masters go into action with a strong foundation as they walloped their opponents 4~1 in the first leg encounter played ten days ago in Accra.
