Inter Allies suffered the second straight defeat in nine pre-season matches in the 1-0 reverse at promoted West Africa Football Academy (formerly known as Feyernoord Academy) on Saturday morning.
Mohammed struck late from the spot to sink Yaw Acheampong’s men.
The home side piled a lot of pressure right from the kick-off but it was Mustapha Odam (Ghana U20 second choice goalkeeper) who stole the applauds when he produced several acrobatic saves to deny the hosts the opener.
We were let off the hook after those saves by the goalkeeper and struggled to regroup in the early minutes of the game but just after a quarter of an hour gone in the match, Acheampong’s men rose and came into the game dominating possession.
Tirelessly, Prosper Kassim worked around the clock and sent a lot of missiles with the help of Talla Ndiaye and Fatawu Safiu, Inter Allies created and missed some decent scoring opportunities.
There were not enough of goal scoring chances after the 40th minute until the end of the break, the second half started brightly with the little home fans cheering their team.
Every touch of the ball by the hosts was greeted with huge applauds encouraging the players to surge on for victory.
Despite attacking and creating the chances, Mustapha proved to be a real ‘cancer’ in the flesh of the hosts as he stopped all the balls from entering his net on his debut unofficial game for the Eleven Is To One.
On the 80th minute, Abass Mohammed who had been on for George Asamoah to stabilise the tiring midfield, brought his marker down in the box to make it an easy decision for the referee, who immediately pointed to the spot.
Mohammed stepped up, did nothing wrong by sending Mustapha the wrong way to open the scoring, they held on to the end.
This becomes the second straight defeat in the pre-season after winning the first seven games.
