We’re going to give Cameroon a good game – Kwesi Appiah
James Kwesi Appiah, Head Coach of the senior national team, the Black Stars, has said the draw against Benin will push the Ghana senior national football team to make the round of 16 at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Benin held the Black Stars to a 2 – 2 drawn game despite the Stars playing for a greater part of the second half with only ten players after John Boye was sent off.
In a post-match press conference after the game, Coach Appiah noted that, he had so much confidence in his team heading into the next games.
“I have enough confidence in my team, despite our draw in the opening game.
“Ghana for some years does not get a good start in competitions, but like I said, any team playing with 10 men in any game and competition is really difficult.
“We are done with the first game and have to put that behind us and prepare for Cameroon.
“We are going to give Cameroon a really good game come Saturday and I am sure we will end victors,” he concluded.
The Black Stars next face defending champions the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on Saturday before squaring off against Guinea-Bissau in their last group game on July 2.
