Conf Cup: Adesina fails to save Côte d’Or as Al Masry advance


Nigeria born Peter Adesina failed to save his Seychelles side Cote d’Or on Sunday as they booked their exit in the CAF Confederation cup play-offs.

It was indeed a two legged nightmare for the Seychelles side as they lost both home and away to Al Masry of Egypt, conceding six goals without scoring any.

In the first leg decided at the Stade Linité in the Indian Ocean enclave the homeboys were hammered 4-0 in front of their fans. The second leg played on Sunday in Egypt did not fare better as the Ocean boys again lost 2-0 to hand the Egyptian side safe passage on a 6-0 aggregate.

Adesina has been in good form ahead of the championship and had reportedly contributed in no small measures to the side’s survival of preliminary clashes.

The waters apparently became too hot for Cote d’Or as they faced a more experienced Al Masry.

The 28 year old had netted 12 goals for the Seychellois Champions and had hoped to help ginger the side to the next level.
