AFCON 2019: A draw against Benin was reasonable – Coach Kwesi Appiah

Coach Kwesi Appiah says his side played a good game against Benin claiming the 2-2 draw was a reasonable result.

Ghana were held by the Squirrels of Benin at the Ismailia Stadium on Tuesday night.

A goal each from the Ayew brothers – Andre and Jordan – were not enough as Benin cancelled out the scoreline following a double from striker Mikael Pote.

Speaking in the aftermath of the game, the Black Stars coach described the 2-2 draw as a reasonable result.

He was, however, quick to admit that his side lost a bit of concentration in the first half, adding it was difficult after going a man down.

“It was a good game, we didn’t concentrate in the first half. In the second half it was hard to play with 10 players,” Appiah said in the post-match conference.

“A draw is reasonable. I didn’t lose hope in my team and wait for us in the next game.”

Defender John Boye was sent off for after receiving two yellow cards.

The Black Stars will take on defending champions Cameroon in their next group game on Saturday.
