Published on: 14 January 2022

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac says he has faith in his players as they look to beat Gabon in their second Group C game on Friday at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The four-time African champions lost their opening game to Morocco last Monday.

Sofiane Boufal strike in the 83rd minute was enough for the North African side to pick all points.

"We are trying to improve our performance and in every match I expect us to play much better and to be more efficient in front of the opponents post. We are now concentrating on Gabon, we have studied the team, we have prepared well and I have faith in my players and we are ready for the match tomorrow," coach Rajevac said.

"I don’t talk about player selection before the match. They are all aware that they are in contention for the team and as I usually say, it’s important to start the match properly but it is even more important to finish the match the way we want so all the boys are ready and tomorrow at the match meeting they will find who will start the match.

Ghana will take on Gabon at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium at 19:00GMT.
