Osman Bukari : Togo are a weak side says Meteors winger

The Black Meteors annihilated Togo U-23 by 5-1 in the first of their CAF U-23 Africa Cup of Nations First round qualification tie but the AS Trenčín winger did not appreciate the overall opposition provided by the Togolese on Tuesday.

“They are a weak side. They managed to hold us in the first half but they were totally down in the second period. We hope to beat them by more goals in the second leg” 20-year old Bukari said.

The former Accra Lions FC player could not hide his joy following his maiden national team appearance having played the full 90 minutes and scoring a sublime goal.

The winger received a clever pass in the opponent’s box from teammate Joel Fameyeh. He danced around couple of defenders before unleashing a powerful effort that crushed the far right post before going in to take the scoreline to 2-1 at the hour mark.

“I am happy to have scored. This is my first national assignment and the feeling is really fantastic especially after scoring to help the team win big” the Sovakia-based winger added.
