Raja Casablanca will go down home and away

You and who are ready for them? Do you know the standard of the the Moroccan league and especially a team with the pedigree such as Raja Casablanca ? You cannot use the woeful Liberians as a yard stick ! I will only believe if Chelsea is able to put up a good performance against Raja in the first leg.

They are nothing to us. :P They may be a big team but, we got a big heart and good players who are ready to fight.

Emmanul Clottey is a Ghana international who has the experience to take it to them.

Charles Taylor is a Ghanaian international . Jordan Opoku is a Ghanaian international, Gladson Awako is a Ghanaian international, Ernest Sowah is a Ghanaian international, and Alfred Arthur is a Ghanaian international.

All these guys have been consdiered good enough to play at least 1 game for GHana so, they are not useless scrubs who will get whipped.

I predict they will do well.

We have more internationals on our team than they do. :P :P

Berekum is ready :P

Comic relief paa niee....... :lol: :lol: :lol:
Clottey , Taylor, Opoku and Awako are not Ghanaian Internationals. When we talk about Ghanaian Internationals we mean Black Stars !!

Are you stupid? Serious question?

THey have all played for the black stars before!

True or false??

1) Jordan Opoku and Gladson Awako have never played for the Black Stars.
2) Clottey made few ameo appearances. Never played a full game and was dumped.
3)As for Taylor, that was over a decade ago when Jones was interim coach.
Are these what you call "Ghanaian Internationals"?

Remember, the CHAN team is not the Black Stars !

Change of referees for Berekum Chelsea – Raja tie

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has replaced the Malian referees for this weekend’s CAF Champions League match involving Ghana's Berekum Chelsea and Raja Casablanca of Morocco due to the Military Coup in the West African country.

The match officials were unable to travel to Ghana for the game following the closure of the Bamako Airport due to the civil unrest in the West African country. The Malian Military announced a takeover on Thursday by dethroning the government of President Amadou Toumani Toure.

Experienced referee Koman Coulibaly was expected to lead a team of Malian referees for the 1/16th round first leg.

Nana Oduro Sarfo, an official of BereKum Chelsea, who confirmed the change of officials to GNA Sports on Friday said, the continent’s soccer governing body has appointed match officials from Cote d’Ivoire for the game billed for Sunday, March 25 at the Golden City Park in Berekum.

Denis Dembele will direct affairs from the middle to be assisted Yeo Songuifolo and Donatien Tan Marius. Kouame N’dri will serve as the fourth official.

Ouedraogo Yacouba of Burkina Faso however remains as the Match Commissioner.

Meanwhile, the match will kick- off at 14h00 GMT at the Berekum Golden City Park and the rates to be charged at the gates are 5 Ghana Cedis (Popular Stand), 10 Ghana Cedis (New Stand) and 15 Ghana Cedis (VIP).

The Ghana League champions beat LISCR of Liberia 5-0 on aggregate at the preliminary round to advance to the next round.**

Berekum Chelsea wallop Raja Athletic Club 5-0

Subject : Berekum Chelsea wallop Raja Athletic Club 5-0
Message :

Ghana champions Berekum Chelsea shocked continental powerhouse Raja Athletic Club of Morocco by beating them 5-0 in their Orange CAF Champions League 1/16th round first leg clash on Sunday in Berekum.

Striker Emmanuel Clottey netted a hat-trick whilst other strikes from Solomon Asante and Abdul Basit handed them the first leg cushion ahead of the return leg in a fortnight in Casablanca.

Berekum Chelsea, debutants in the continental club championship took well their chances as they tore apart Raja Athletic Club, thrice winners of the premier African club championship. The result marks one of the heaviest defeats suffered by the 10-time Moroccan Champions in their continental campaigns.

The hosts started well and appeared poised for an early goal as the Moroccans struggled to contain the onslaughts into their half. They had to wait till the 33rd minute before Asante broke the deadlock with a shot on the turn from Basit’s cross from the right.

The Moroccans deplored a tactical approach and relied on the counter but paid the price for their sluggish defensive abilities.

With a lone goal lead at half time, it was Berekum Chelsea all the way in the second half as they pinned their visitors to their half. Less than 20 seconds into the half, Clottey capitalised on a defensive blunder to score his side’s second goal.

On 54 minutes, Clottey scored his second goal from the spot after captain Basit was fouled in the vital area by his marker. At this stage, it looked a tall mountain for the “Green Eagles” as they laboured in search of their feet.

Midfielder Basit made it 4-0 by connecting home from a goalmouth action before Clottey completed the rout with his third goal of the day two minutes from time.

Reaction: Berekum Chelsea vs Raja Athletic Club
Hans Van der Pluijm (Head Coach, Berekum Chelsea)
“I was confident of victory but not by such a margin. We played very well and at some point I was sure we could score more goals. The task is not over yet and we have to organise ourselves very well for the second leg.”

Emmanuel Clottey (striker, Berekum Chelsea)
“I am very happy with our performance today. We worked very hard and we deserved victory. Also, I feel great to have scored a hat-trick and I thank my colleagues for their support. We have to maintain our confidence and prepare for the second leg.”

Government to assist Berekum Chelsea in Champions League
Posted On Tuesday, 27th March 2012

The Government of Ghana has promised a financial package for Berekum Chelsea in their quest to qualify to the money zone of the CAF Champions League.

The club are Ghana’s sole representative in Africa this year after Nania FC pulled out of the Confederation Cup due to financial reasons.

According to the Ghana League Clubs Association, the defending Ghana Premier League champions will receive financial assistance from government to defray the cost incurred.

“Fortunately for us,the government has promised to announce a very big package for Chelsea so as to help them progress in the competition in order to uplift the image of the country,” GHALCA chairman Alhaji Braimah Raji told Sunyani-based Storm FM.

”We met with the ministry of Youth and Sports and that is what the government has decided so we are waiting for the announcement of the package probably in two weeks time.

”The government made it clear that they understand the importance and implications of the country winning the continental trophy.

“So the plans are far advanced to push Chelsea all the way to the top because it’s been a long time since the country won a trophy at club levels.”

Debutants Berekum Chelsea defeated three-time African Champions Raja Casablanca 5-0 at the Golden City Park on Sunday in the penultimate round first leg tie.

Nigerian representatives in the Orange CAF interclub competition Dolphin and Sunshine Stars must fight for survival this weekend when return games are
played in the first round of the CAF Champions League. Dolphin take a precarious 2-1 lead over 2008 runners-up Cotonsport Garoua to Cameroon while Sunshine must overcome a 4-1 first-leg drubbing when they host Recreativo do Libolo from Angola. While Enyimba are the only Nigerian side to win the elite CAF club competition, it would be humiliating for the African football power if both clubs failed to make the last-16 final qualifying round.Both Nigerian coaches remain upbeat as they try to undo the damage of two weeks ago when Dolphin missed a penalty and many chances and Sunshine lost concentration in the closing stages to concede three goals. "My boys may not have achieved the emphatic victory we hoped for, but I still believe in them and I am confident of a good result in the return match," Dolphin handler Stanley Eguma said. Sunshine Stars boss Olubenga Ogumbota was emphatic: "My players are capable of overcoming the deficit, uncomfortably large though it is. I do not believe anything is lost."

It could have been even worse for Port Harcourt-based Dolphin as the winning goal from Ghana-born Owusu Addae came just three minutes from time
after Ifeanyi Egwim had given his team an early lead and fluffed a second-half spot kick. Dolphin came closest to African glory in 2005 when beaten by FAR Rabat of Morocco in the CAF Confederation Cup final while Cotonsport lost 4-2 on aggregate against Al Ahly of Egypt in the Champions League decider four years ago.
Sunshine exceeded expectations to reach the Confederation Cup semi-finals at the first attempt last year and seemed a good bet to reach the group phase
of the Champions League at least. However, two goals within three minutes from Adawa and Dario turned the tide in favour of provincial outfit Recreativo and Cameroon-born Edy struck a potentially crucial fourth in stoppage time. "We are going to Nigeria with just one thought ,victory," stressed Libolo coach and former national team star Zeca Amaral, whose team stunned former champions Orlando Pirates of South Africa in a preliminary tie. Although Al Ahly have been African champions a record six times and held Coffee 0-0 in Ethiopia two weeks ago, the talented but ageing squad of Portuguese coach Manuel Jose will take nothing for granted. Coffee were also held at home by Ahly in a previous first round clash 14 years ago only to win the tie on away goals and the Cairo Red Devils have been hampered by a lack of match practice.
With the exception of two Champions League games behind closed doors involving Zamalek, competitive football has been banned in Egypt since 74 people died on February 1 in post-match riots after Ahly lost a league game in Port Said.The arch rivals of Ahly take a 1-0 lead over Africa Sports of Ivory Coast to Abidjan and will miss injured striker Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam in a repeat of the 1986 CAF Champions Cup final won by the Cairo club on penalties. Title holders Esperance of Tunisia should advance to the final qualifying round without undue difficulty having drawn 1-1 with African debutants Brikama United in Gambia. Other former champions in action are Vita Club and TP Mazembe from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Etoile Sahel of Tunisia, who all drew away, and Raja Casablanca of Morocco, trounced 5-0 by newcomers Berekum Chelsea in Ghana.
