Ghana’s coach James Akwasi Appiah has outlined tactical discipline and hunger for success that propelled Ghana to beat Congo 5-1 in Brazzaville.
In his post match press conference, the former Black Stars captain said “the team worked hard for endurance in preparation for the return encounter”.
He continued that “his boys were better prepared for the game because of the results that came from the first encounter in Kumasi”.
Speaking on the frustrations at the airport on the team’s arrival, Akwasi Appiah said, “the boys were not that much disturbed because they know these things are normal in Africa and as professionals did not allow them to get into their heads, however, they were psyched before the game to forget about every problem and think about the nation and their careers as footballers”.
He then spoke on the game itself ,”The players were tactically disciplined and were ready to die for the nation”, Kwasi emphasized.
The Coach of the Black Stars also explained thus” I cannot guarantee our qualification for the World Cup now, we just have to do our best to win the rest of the two matches left and see what the Heavens will do for us, anything can happen”.
Ghana missed some key players yet played better to win by the huge margin.
