Kwadwo Asamoah crushes out of UEFA Champions League with Juventus

Kwadwo Asamoah out of Champions League

Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah suffered elimination from the Uefa Champions League after Juventus lost 1-0 at Galatasaray on Wednesday.

The Ghanaian international played full throttle as they went down 1-0 at the Turk Telecom Arena in a rescheduled fixture.

A late goal from Wesley Sneijder eliminated the Italian champions from Europe’s elite inter club competition in awful conditions in Istanbul.

The crucial match between the two clubs was postpnoed on Tuesday after 31 minutes due to a downpour of hail and snow, and conditions were hardly much better as Roberto Mancini’s side joined Real Madrid in progressing from Group B.

Within seconds of the restart the game looked certain to fall victim to further farce when the ball became stuck in the thick brown mud coating the surface, but the flanks were dotted by green patches and play was just about possible over the white dusting in Istanbul.

The best chance of the truncated first half came to Carlos Tevez, who took the ball on following some good hold-up play from Fernando Llorente, burst into the box but then lost his footing on the slippy turf when swinging his right boot at the ball and only found the side netting.

The viscous surface made a short-passing game near impossible and so it was from a long-ball that Gala claimed the winner on 85 minutes, Didier Drogba flicking it on to Sneijder who took the ball superbly in his stride and stroked a lovely shot into the far corner past Gianluigi Buffon.

    Awwww! Hardluck KASA! A draw would have been enough to send Juve to the next round but it wasn’t the case, the late goal they conceded in the 1st leg in Turin was their undoing otherwise they would have qualified already going into this game. That’s football for ya, its really a crazy game!
