Some key players also failed to turn up in the game as the Black Stars had to settle for the 1-0 win to secure the three points.

Reacting to the team’s performance at the post-match conference CK Akonnor admitted his team was not exciting as he had expected.

“We managed to win. It was a very difficult game”.

“We were not too exciting as we expected to play, I must admit. But we managed to win the three points which is the most important thing”

Ghana will travel to Johannesburg to play South Africa on Monday September 6, 2021.

Six key players Jordan Ayew, Daniel Amartey, Jeffrey Schlupp, Andy Yiadom will not be able to make the trip due to COVID-19 quarantine regulations in the UK.
