Pulse.com.gh editor Godfred Akoto Boafo rates the Black Stars players for the 2017 AFCON qualifying game against Mozambique
Razak Braimah 6- Did not have much to do all game aside watching a Pelembe header bounce off his crossbar in the first half. One of the easiest games he has played for the Black Stars. Harrison Afful 6- Saw a lot of the ball in Maputo unlike the first leg .One cross that Assifuah should have buried stood out.Aside that a steady performance.
John Boye 7- An easy day at the office for the center back as he dealt with everything the Mambas threw at him.
Jonathan Mensah 7-Anzhi's newest defender should have scored with a free header but that will not take the shine off a decent performance.Showed his ability to read the game with some timely interventions.
Baba Rahman 5- Another underwhelming performance from Baba Rahman. The swashbuckling left back who burst into the team has been replaced by a timid impersonator.One late run showed what he is capable off but moments are becoming infrequent.
Agyeman Badu 5- Badu's skillset is a pretty limited one and this was not the right game to showcase them. Very hard to recall a sequence where he influenced the game.
Afriyie Acquah 7- A return to form for Ghana's enforcer as he bullied the Mambas with his power and pace.Started a few attacks with his passing range.
Alfred Duncan 6-A decent showing from the Sassuolo midfielder as he burts forward from his midfield role. Drew a fine save from Causito and placed another header wide.
Jeffrey Schlupp 5- Missed another chance to stake a claim to a starting berth in the team. Full of energy but he looks lost in the current set up.
Jordan Ayew 7- Never seems to stop running.Drew defenders to himself to create space and also linked up well to make chances.
Ebenezer Assifuah- Mozambiques's right back Edmilson will not forget the man in the 11 shirt for a while as Assifuahs's pace tortured him. Needs to work on his composure infront of goal as he missed two clear chances that were easier to score than to miss.
