‘My boys did well against Japan’-Kwasi Appiah

Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah says the performances of his players

were good enough irrespective of losing 1-3 to Japan. Ghana who played

with a weakened team took the lead in the first half before conceding

three goals after recess in Yokohama. Coach Appiah was without most of

his star players who withdrew based on varied reasons after they beat

Zambia 2-1 in a 2014 WC qualifier last Friday. "To build a team it is

important to play against top teams as Japan. I was very positively

impressed by the performance of my players, they all did well, but at

this level if you lose concentration you do face a big blow, but

performance- wise it was a good game us," the former Black Stars

captain said at the post match conference. "I believe that Japan is a

very good team, all of the players are very good, I don't think it is

fair to talk about a single player, but Kagawa is a very good player,

everybody knows that. When asked why he played full back Harrison

Afful in midfield, Kwesi Appiah said the Esperance player is a utility

player and did very well in his unusual role against Japan. The Black

Stars will next gather in October when they take on a yet-to-be known

opponent in the Africa play- off's for a place at the 2014 WC in
