The Ghanaian side will have to beat the Gaurua-based club in the next two weeks or see themselves out
The dethroned Ghana league champions played out a goalless home draw this weekend against the Cameroonian side.
“It’s not over. Nothing is impossible in football,” van der Pluym told Goal.com. “It’s going to be tough, but that’s what football is all about.”
“It was the best chance to win at home, but we’ve got to concentrate on the second leg and make sure we progress. I’m very hopeful and we’re looking forward to a win and I believe in my players to make it for Ghana,” he added.
Chelsea scored five goals in their last continental match at the same venue against Raja Casablanca and will have to beat Coton Sport in two weeks to scale over to the money zone.
