Quincy Owusu-Abeyie's Champions League Hopes Dashed

Ghana winger Quincy Owusu-Abeyie dream of playing Uefa Champions League football this term crashed on Tuesday night. The speedster was excluded from the Panathinaikos squad which lost 3-4 at home to OB Odense in the third qualifying round. The Greek giants bowed out 4-5 on aggregate. It is still unknown why head coach Jesualdo Ferreira opted not to field the dribbler in the return leg. He was a second half substitute when Panathinaikos earned a one-draw at OB last week. Abeyie joined Panathinaikos on loan from Al Sadd this summer and was relishing the prospects of playing in Europe’s flagship club competition.
