thumbnail Hello,

Coach Kwesi Appiah has patted his charges on the back after scoring seven goals from two test games, and believes their satisfactory output could take Ghana far

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is optimistic it will be difficult for his opponents at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations to read his game because he has an unpredictable side.

Appiah, who was “satisfied” with the performance of the Black Stars in their last two warm-up matches against Egypt and Tunisia, said when a coach has a side with everyone scoring then “it is a good team.”

“When you are making a team you need to give everyone an equal opportunity,” Appiah said. “The good thing is once the main core of the players you have in mind are all putting in what you expect them to do, then you know that you are getting to where you need to be.”

“The good thing is that you never know who will score at any given time whether an attacker, a defender or a midfielder, which I think shows signs of a good team,” the coach said after the Black Stars fought back to beat Tunisia 4-2 in Abu Dhabi on Sunday evening.

“It tells me that they can rise to any occasion and that is the most important thing.”

He was also full of praise to his strikers who are making good use of crosses from the wings to deliver the goals for the four-time African champions.

“Our attackers have been doing very well now and in both games we created so many chances and most of it came from the wings. We are making good use of our set pieces and as a result we get goals out of it,” Appiah added.
