Ghana first choice goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey admits he is thrilled with the Black Stars’ qualification to next January’s Nations Cup.
Parma midfielder Afriyie Acquah scored in the 4th minute to claim a 1-0 victory for the four-time African champions in Lilongwe and book their ticket for the 2013 AFCON on a 3-0 aggregate.
The Norwegian-born shot-stopper was in goal for James Kwesi Appiah’s men and he is set to make his second Nations Cup appearance since switching his nationality to play for Ghana in September 2011.
Kwarasey says he is looking forward to South Africa 2013.
“I feel really good after the game and I’m happy for the qualification,” the Stromsgodset No.1 told Ghanasoccernet.com
The 24-year-old says the nature of the pitch at the Civo Stadium marred the beauty of the game.
“It was a good game but the pitch took away the beauty of the game. It was the worst pitch I have ever played on.”
