Konadu satisfied with Burkina Faso stalemate in Chan qualifiers

The Black Stars B coach is not disappointed with the draw against the Stallions in Ouagadougou on Saturday

Ghana assistant coach Maxwell Konadu says he is 'proud' of his team's performance in their 2-2 draw against Burkina Faso in the first leg of the 2018 Chan qualifiers played at Stade du 4 Aout in Ouagadougou on Saturday.

Kotoko striker Sadick Adams opened the scoring for the Black Stars B from the spot before Sylla Mohammed equalised few minutes later.

However, Wafa's midfielder Gideon Waja made it 2-1 in the second-half before Illiase Sawadogo equalised again for the hosts to make the tie still open for both countries.

“I am not disappointed with the scoreline but am a bit worried about how we conceded the two goals," Konadu said.

"This is because I felt we could have done better than what we saw here. We were playing far away from home and I think a 2-2 scoreline is not bad as we all know ahead of the return leg but we could have done better. I'm proud of them anyway,” he added.

Ghana will welcome Burkina Faso to Baba Yara Sports Stadium for the return leg next weekend and the winner in aggregate will automatically qualify to the tournament which will be hosted by Kenya.

Goal understands that the Black Stars contingent have arrived in the country and will travel to Kumasi on Monday to prepare for the return encounter.
