The attacker shares his thoughts on Friday's draw with The Indomitable Lions 

Ghana winger Evans Mensah admits their output in the first half of their opening match of the Africa U23 Cup of Nations (Afcon) against Cameroon left much to be desired on Friday.

On their tournament debut, the Black Meteors opened their campaign with a 1-1 draw at Cairo International Stadium. 

Ghana had to snatch a point the hard way as they had to come from behind courtesy of Habib Mohammed's effort three minutes to full-time to cancel out Franck Evina's 59th-minute opener for The Indomitable Lions. 

"We didn’t play well in the first half but the second was much better," Mensah, who was adjudged Man of the Match, said after the game as reported by Cafonline.com .
