The head coach of Ghana Black Stars C.K Akonnor has hailed the Black Stars efficiency in front of goal despite expressing reservations about his team’s performance against Ethiopia.

“I must be honest with myself, we were not too exciting with ourselves but at least the team was efficient” Coach Akonnor said after the game.

Ghana began their qualification campaign with an unconvincing win at home to Ethiopia.

Mubarak Wakaso goal- ten minutes before the break was enough to secure maximum points against Ethiopia and place the Black Stars above every team in Group G.

The Walians of Ethiopia however will be disappointed that they left the game empty handed after impressing against the African giants and perhaps could have nicked a point at the end, but Richard Ofori went low to save to spare the Stars blushes, and Amartey reacted quickest to the loose ball to clear the danger.

Ethiopia were brave in possession and looked a different side to the one that lost to Ghana 7-0 over two legs four years ago.

Ghana must definitely improve ahead of their trip to Johannesburg to face South Africa on Monday 6th September, 2021.
