Striker Asamoah Gyan says Liberia deserved their 2-0 win over Ghana in Tuesday’s friendly game.
The Black Stars were unable to recover from a 2-0 scoreline suffered within the first ten minutes of the game played in Monrovia.
Many reasons have since been preferred for the shocking defeat including the late start of the match.
The game also did not travel the full 45 minutes in the first half but the stand-in captain says the Black Stars were second best and thus deserved the defeat.
“We conceded the goals within three minutes and when that happens it becomes very difficult to come back,” he told Peace FM.
“I think it was due to loss in concentration but we mounted a good fight but unfortunately we were unable to come back.
“We need to accept the defeat in good faith because the better side won.”
The Black Stars had three days earlier beaten Malawi 2-0 in the first leg of the 2013 Nations Cup qualifier in a far from convincing performance.
Ghana will next play The Flames in the return encounter of the AFCON qualifier next month in Blantyre.
