Touching on the feeling in camp after the victories in an interview with TV3, Mr Okraku said the players remain focused on the task ahead.

He said that the players have renewed self-belief and trust the Milovan Rajevac to lead them.

“I think that the team has been very focused," he said.

"Our resolve is to get the team to a level where Ghanaians want, so when the team won 3-1, it gave us a new level of energy.

"The boys began to have self-belief and I’m not surprised that they gave us a discipline performance. I have been very impressed,” he added.

With nine points from four games, the Black Stars are trailing leaders South Africa by a point.
