Coach Kwesi Appiah bemoans wasted chances as Kenya shock Ghana with 1-0 win

Published on: 10 September 2018

Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah rues his side wastefulness in front of goal as they were beaten 1-0 by Harambee Stars of Kenya in Nairobi on Saturday in the 2019 Afcon qualifiers.

Ghana wasted several opportunities in the game, especially in the first half and couldn't also capitalise on the numerical advantage handed them after the break, when defender Joash Onyango saw a red card.

Speaking after the game, coach Appiah claims Ghana were better than Kenya but failed to take their chances.

"We had a lot of chances and numerical advantage but it’s just unfortunate we couldn’t utilize any," Appiah said.

"I believe Kenya did well but we could have done better with the chances we had. We should have at least converted them to snatch a point."

"I don't think we deserved to lose but I'm very sure that we'll still qualify from the group despite the defeat. We will make sure all the mistakes don't happen again in the subsequent games," he added.

Ghana will host Sierra Leone in the next game in October.
