Asante Kotoko's Wednesday victory over Zesco United of Zambia was greeted with excitement in many Ghanaian circles.
Following a defeat on matchday one of the group stage, the Porcupine Warriors bounced back with a 2-1 home triumph at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
Kwame Bonsu and Emmanuel Gyamfi scored to send their side level on points with the other three teams in Group C.
The visitors' consolation, interestingly, came from their Ghanaian recruit Rahim Osumanu in the second half after danger man Jackson Were saw his first-half penalty saved by Kotoko's outstanding goalkeeper Felix Annan.
Below, Goal samples some social media reactions to the game:

Just had the opportunity to watch Kotoko’s game against Zesco and to be honest with y’all this Kotoko team is making CAF believe in Ghana football(locally) again after years. Let’s all support them to win more and bring the trophy home. 🔴— Kwesi Boateng 🇬🇭 (@qwecikanye) February 13, 2019
