Erisa Ssekisambu came on as a second half substitute as his Kenyan club Gor Mahia suffered an embarrassing 5-1 in the 2018/2019 Total CAF Confederation Cup quarter final match against RS Berkane on Sunday night.
Gor’s build up to the match was chaotic with majority of the players landing in Berkane less than two hours to kick off due to disorganization in travel plans.
Gor woes started on Thursday when they failed to travel as planned after the Kenyan government failed to purchase air tickets on time.
On Friday evening, seven players majorly reserve players left the country for Berkane. They were to be followed by the rest of the squad later that night but a plane mechanical problem saw the flight canceled, the team finally left on Saturday.
Things went from bad to worse when they landed in Casablanca on Sunday morning and had to endure the torture of traveling to Berkane by bus, a distance of over 600 Kilometers. They arrived two hours before kickoff and had to check in hurriedly for the match.
The fruits of disorganization were reaped 20 minutes into the game when Laba Kodjo gave his side the lead, three minutes later, Lawrence Juma gave Gor a glimpse of hope with an equalizer.
The reprieve was however short lived as Mohamed Aziz and Bakre Helali stretched Berkane’s lead to 3-1 just before half time. Issouf Dayo and Yousse Essaidy added two more in the second half to complete Gor’s humiliation.
Gor lost 2-0 in the first leg at Kasarani and the Berkane massacre sees them exit the competition on a 7-1 aggregate.
