We were not discipline defensively - Nsoatreman FC coach Mumuni Abubakari after FA Cup defeat

Published on: 15 May 2023

Nsoatreman FC coach, Mumuni Abubakari has attributed their MTN FA Cup elimination to defensive errors.

The Nsoatre-based club faced King Faisal in the semifinal clash of the FA Cup on Sunday at the Dr Kwame Kyei Sports Complex.

Despite taking an early lead, Nsoatreman were beaten 3-2 by King Faisal.

Samuel Ofori's expertly taken spot kick in the 9th minute put Nsoatreman in the lead.

Baba Yahaya restored parity by scoring for Faisal in the 35th minute. Frimpong Boateng's half-volley found the back of the net to put Faisal in the lead in the 44th minute.

After recess, Kwame Nana Junior levelled for Nsoatreman on 55 minutes but Samuel Adom Antwi restored Faisal's lead in the 64th minute.

The Insha Allah Boys held on to their lead to secure a spot in the final.

"It's the same defensive errors and it's like my goalkeeper was late to the second and third balls. That is the game of football," Mumuni told StarTimes at full time.

"You look at the weaknesses and then see how you can work them out," he added.

Mumuni and his lads now turn their attention to the Premier League as they fight to avoid relegation.
