Stephen Appiah reveals why Black Stars failed to beat Congo in Kumasi in World Cup qualifier

Published on: 14 September 2017

Ghana Technical Coordinator Stephen Appiah says pressure on the Black Stars resulted to their unimpressive performance in their World Cup qualifier against Congo at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

Ghana surprisingly drew 1-1 with Congo at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, a game many thought was a simple win for coach Appiah's side.

The former Black Stars skipper has disclosed what accounted to the team’s inability to claim all the three maximum points.

“On Thursday, before the game, I told the players that I have experienced something like that before. I quite remember in 2006, South Africa played against Lesotho on Saturday and we played against Burkina Faso on Sunday, so It was very difficult for the players because it put more pressure on you,”

“That was what I saw when we were in camp, so I tried to psyche the players, we tried to talk to them and during their warming up you can sense something is wrong with them,” Stephen Appiah told GH One TV.
