We are working to improve – Black Stars coach

Coach of the Black Stars, James Kwesi Appiah says he and his charges are “working to improve” and that he is doing his best to win matches as they progress in the Egypt 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Second half strikes from Jordan Ayew and Thomas Partey handed Ghana a 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau in their Group F final game on Tuesday in Suez and a place at the knockout stage of the competition.

The win, Ghana’s first at the campaign, saw them finish top of the group after Cameroon and Benin played out a barren draw in the other game in Ismailia.

The Black Stars coach was full of praise for his team as he shrugs off criticisms from many Ghanaians.

“I congratulate my players for achieving such a result. We started the game on a slow pace because we had to be patient without rushing. It should also be noted that we adapt our game system according to the qualities and shortcomings of the opponent. If we are to take criticism into account, we will stop playing football. We are working to improve and I am doing my best to win the matches”, coach Appiah noted.

Answering questions from the media after the game, the Black Stars coach admitted that his team did not play well in the first half but he was happy to see his boys improve in the second half.

“Actually, I was not happy with the first half. It was not the best. I told them to wake up because that is not how we play. Tactically there were so many problems so I was not happy”.
