APPIAH HAPPY

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has said that he is extremely happy following the 4-0 win over Sudan in the recent World Cup qualifying match. Ghana came into the encounter three points behind the leaders Zambia in the table.

However, as a result of this victory coupled with the draw for Zambia, they have managed to close the gap to just one point. After the match, Appiah said that he was extremely happy with the way his team were tactically organised. Former Sunderland striker Gyan opened the scoring after just 90 min on the clock.

Ghana were then able to double their advantage in the 38th minute through a goal from Mubarak Wakaso. Two goals in the space of 6 min from the likes of Emmanuel Agyemang Badu and Abdul Majeed Warris helped the black cats register their second win of the group matches. Ghana have lost the other match. They came into the encounter after having recently been beaten by Zambia 1-0, which led to the demotion to the second place in the table. Appiah has said that it was all about winning the match, and he is proud that his boys were able to do the same in an extraordinary fashion.

Ghana's next match will be the reverse of this fixture.
"The players were tactically disciplined today and the way we played proved we were tactically better. The players gave their best to get the win for the nation. There were a few lapses which are normal but we will make sure we make amends in our next game. Overall the performance was really good. We needed to win to keep on course. Though we were desperate to get the goals, the boys still stayed composed and worked hard," said Appiah after the match against Sudan, which they won comfortably.
