Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah feels satisfied with his side’s scoring rate ahead of Tuesday’s 2014 World Cup qualifier against Egypt.
The 54-year-old watched his men hammer lower-tier side Deportivo 7-1 in a warm-up friendly on Friday evening and he feels delighted with their rate of scoring.
Russia-based Abdul Majeed Waris bagged a brace while Sulley Muntari, Wakaso Mubarak and Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu all got on the score-sheet.
“It’s very pleasing to have every player contributing a goal or more. It shows that the Black Stars can get goals from any player, from defence, midfield or attack,” Appiah told the official website of the Ghana FA.
“The group has ability in terms of goal-scoring wise. And that is good for us because we are not reliant on any particular player.
“I am delighted and hope we find many goals in our next match while ensuring our discipline at the back. We have let in three goals though we could have done better.
“But we must keep our balance and improve. We meet a good side but must cause them problems to get what we plan for,” he added.
The Black Stars finished the group stages of the qualifiers with more goals than any other country, scoring 18 goals while Egypt, Tuesday’s opposition were second 16 goals.
