The Technical Coordinator of the Black Stars has revealed that the team were under pressure to get the results against Congo at home and that affected team play.
Ghana were held to a shocking 1-1 draw against Congo at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi last month to put their chances of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in danger.
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.
