Gyan admits to Ghana's slack defending in DR Congo draw

Gyan admits to Ghana's slack defending in DR Congo draw

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan

By Ameenu Shardow

Captain Asamoah Gyan accepts Ghana were slack in their defending in the 2-2 draw with DR Congo on Sunday.

The Black Stars threw away a two goal lead to share the spoils with the Leopards in the opening Group B fixture at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The disappointing result has seen Ghana red-faced for a crucial win against Mali on Thursday to resurrect the side’s title ambitions in South Africa.

Gyan however in congratulating the DRC for their strong mentality in the fight-back admits the Black Stars should have done better to clinch the win.

“Yes, I accept it (about Ghana being careless in conceding the two goals). I’d say we lost a bit of concentration and they came back and drew,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“I would like to congratulate the Congolese, they did so well, they started the game so well but our mentality was alright and we went up by two goals.

“They (DRC) were however also able to prove that they are also mentally strong and they came back, that is football.

“We have to accept it and then concentrate on the next game.”

Ghana with one point are now third in Group B behind Mali and the DRC in first and second respectively ahead of match day 2.

    Slack defending?? man, if you had scored the one on one, I don’t think we will be here talking about slack defending…You just disappoint on so many levels, you first had the opportunity to play in the Premier league where you could have really develop your potential then you moved to a league where even Ghana premier league is far more competitive.You have to be serious, one on one and you can’t even hit the post or force a save from the keeper and thank God you are not Ivorian,you wouldn’t even make the provisional squad let alone first team with such lackadaisical play of yours.

    If you want to win the trophy you don’t have to loose concentration at any stage in a game. I think you guys did not fight like a team that wants to win the ultimate.

    Gyan, don’t even talk about any defending situation here. The defenders played better than you did i swear. You had a bad game and if you do not score in your next game AA has to bench you.
