Asante Kotoko head coach Paa Kwesi Fabien has lauded his outfit's performance in their 1-1 draw against Simba S.C in an international friendly match.
Despite the halt of the top flight league, Asante Kotoko showed no sign of rustiness as they held the Tanzanian champions to a 1-1 draw at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam.
Asante Kotoko broke the deadlock through Obed Owusu who tapped home on the stroke of half time.
Simba S.C upped their game and restored parity through Emmanuel Okwi.
"Simba have a good team and I think they will admit that we gave them a tough battle in front of their supporters and that will help them in their preparations for the new season in Tanzania," he added.
