Kaizer Chiefs go out of CAF with a whimper

Posted: 27 April 2014 Time: 19:47

Kaizer Chiefs were knocked out of the CAF Confederation Cup after a 1-0 defeat to ASEC Mimosas in Abidjan on Sunday.

Chiefs travelled to the Ivory Coast with a squad of only 13 players and placed assistant coach Doctor Khumalo in charge as Stuart Baxter remained at home to prepare for his side's next League match.

There were not many changes to the starting eleven that lost 2-1 in the first leg at home as Morgan Gould captained the side.

ASEC had an early penalty appeal waved away in an open start to the game before Rusike rattled the woodwork in a show of intent. Chiefs' fringe players looked hungry to impress in the heat of Abidjan.

However, despite the Ivorian side showing their visitors respect, Chiefs were unable to break down a stubborn ASEC defence and failed to register many shots on target in the first half.

In the second half ASEC striker Foba Stevens Koffi went close with one effort and sent another shot wide as he looked to break the deadlock.

Khumalo eventually used one of his two substitutes named on the bench when Lorenzo Gordinho came on for Siyabonga Nkosi, who was dictating the play in the first half.

It was a game short of goalmouth action as Chiefs had 10 goal attempts but were unable to make the ASEC goalkeeper work, while Reyaad Pieterse was also having a quiet day at the office.

However, Koffi got the goal he was looking for late in the game after receiving the ball in the six-yard area and placing a shot past Pieterse. The linesman had his flag up as he scored, but the referee awarded the goal.

The goal ended the tie as Chiefs lost 3-1 on aggregate and were knocked out of Africa.

Chiefs XI: Pieterse, Moleko, Mtsweni, Gould (c), Bukenya, Baloyi, Maluleka, Cele, Nkosi (Gordinho 70'), Rusike, Masango

Bench: Khuzwayo, Gordinho
Coach: Doctor Khumalo

zebradoublekick You always comment about other teams and nobody tells you what to say but now you want to dictate to people what to say or not to say about Chiefs, this is very rich coming from you.

I think it is wrong to suggest that Zebras do not care about Continental football. The truth of the matter is that the Zebras have a myopic view of themselves, thinking that they are one of the big teams in Africa. They still need to learn the robes from Pirates. With the attitude they have they will never have a star on their emblem, except of course the ZCC star. I'm not surprised they crashed out to Asec.
