Ghana ready for Mali clash - Appiah

Ghana ready for Mali clash - Appiah

Ghana coach Akwasi Appiah

By Ameenu Shardow

Ghana coach Akwasi Appiah says his team is fully prepared to face Mali on Thursday.

The Black Stars threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with DR Congo in the opening Group B game at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The disappointing results have awaken critics of the four-time African champions who aim to end a staggering 31-year wait for an African title in South Africa.

Players and supporters of the team have bemoaned the missed opportunity by the Black Stars to get their campaign off to a flying start following the opening draw with DR Congo.

But coach Appiah believes his team has recovered from the opening set back and are set to jump-start their campaign with a win over Mali though admitting to the herculean task ahead.

“After the first game, the technical team and playing body, almost everyone was not happy but at the moment we have psyched ourselves up and we are really prepared for the game,” he said.

“As to any anxiety, we believe it is not going to be easy but we are going to give our best.”

A win will certainly lift Ghana above their Thursday opponent who currently top Group B while a defeat will spell doom for the Black Stars who are one of the favourites to win the competition.

  7. selfmade says:

    I see mali beating us if we played like we did against congo… no seriousness,too pompous,no urgency shit!!! We need a leader on the field and for me gyan is too isolated upfront from the rest of the players for him to shout and talked to our players!! Next time we have to give the captainship to a lawmakers as he revolves around the pitch!! Am not a prophet of doom but i see disaster!!! Viva the revolutionciooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

    • maka says:

      if gyan is too isolated, my brother, whose fault? is it not technical bakruptcy from the coach/bench?
      this coach talks and has no clue! Even Herve Renard knows! Twiaaaa…..akwasi appiah…”wasa papa”!

        gruzah is right. kasa cant play leftback. if he could, the dr congo players wouldnt be having a field day on the left hand side. let kasa play the 11. atsu must COME OFF THE BENCH N PLAY 7. THESE 2 MUST OVERLAP. KASA WILL BE MORE EFFECTIVE ON THE LEFT FLANKS WITH SPEED, CROSSES, PASSES N SHOTS ON GOAL
        DAUDA, 2.AFFUL, 3.WAKASSO, 4.MENSAH, 5.AWAL, 6.AKAMINKO, 7.ATSU, 8.BADU, 9.RABIU, 10.CLOTTEY 11. KASA…..
        DONT START GYAN. LET HIM OBSERVE LIKE GEDDO. BRING GYAN FROM THE BENCH TO USE HIS EXPERIENCE TO FEND OFF MALIAN DEFENDERS.
        GIVE THE CAPTAIN TO BADU.

  8. Dr Who says:

    Ghana will beat Mali and all of you haters will eat a very fat humble pie.

  9. yopoo says:

    kwasi appiah shd stop using kwadwo asamoah at da left back.

  12. dadaba gonshots says:

    Kwesi Appiah. For the first time in your Coaching life, please prove me wrong!
    1.You have no Technical Eye for the game.
    2.You did your selection of Players for the AFCON with your heart instead of your Head and you are suffering for it.
    3.You wish you had a time machine to reverse time to just before you announced your final list innit?
    4. If you have had the audacity and hairy yet wizend balls to drop the AYEWs( oh!) then drop the rapper-cum-dancer and use someone else as a top striker…oh I have forgotten, you do not have anyone else because Jordan is still at Marseille.
