Exclusive: The Porcupine Warriors midfielder says they would go on the attack against CARA in the Confederation Cup second-leg encounter

Asante Kotoko midfielder Emmanuel Gyamfi has promised an open game against CARA Brazzaville when the two sides meet in the second leg of the Caf Confederation Cup preliminary round on February 21.

The Porcupine Warriors have a slim advantage heading into the game after winning 1-0 at Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi on Sunday. Three penalties were missed in that game.

"I think we must open up and face them squarely in the second leg. It will be wrong to defend and rely solely on counterattack since that can make us vulnerable," Gyamfi told Goal.

"We have to open up and face them since they're not better than us. We will have to try and create as many chances as possible in order to score an away goal. Moreover, they will be under pressure to score two unanswered goals in order to eliminate us so any goal from us will be a major blow to them.

"You can attest to the fact that their decision to defend throughout the first leg in Kumasi never materialised because we had four penalties as a result and they were only lucky one went in," he added.
