Assistant coach of Ghana Maxwell Konadu is already looking ahead into the future following the Black Stars' failure to advance to the final of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday..
Ghana were shocked by one of the tournament's surprise package Burkina Faso as they beat the Black Stars 3-2 on penalties in the semi-final after taking the lead in the first half through a penalty which was converted by Wakaso Mubarak at the Mbombela Stadium.
Konadu believes the team has a great potential of making a great impact on the continent in the future and needs to be encouraged.
"We can do well in the future. All isn't lost. We have a very good side and will continue to work for the better," he said.
The four-time African champiopns now have to focus on playing Mali on Saturday for the third and fourth place match.
