”It is very annoying to lose because we were the better side, and we lost. My team is a good generation despite not winning a major title.” said Ghana Coach Avram Grant after failing to secure qualification to finals in the ongoing Cup of Nations in Gabon.
According to the former Chelsea boss the Black Stars were the better side despite losing 2-0 to a resurgent Cameroonian side at semifinals on Thursday night.

Avram Grant who was charged by the Ghana Football Association to win the trophy having lost it to Ivory Coast in 2015 failed to do so after painfully losing 2-0 to a highly spirited Cameroonian team.
”I wanted to be in the final. We did a lot today. In the second half, the first goal came from a set piece and the second from a counter attack. It is very annoying to lose because we were the better side, and we lost. My team is a good generation despite not winning a major title.”
The Israeli added ”Last time (in 2015), we lost on penalties in the final. Now, we have lost at the semi-finals. I think they deserved more than this. We lost the important match after having a good competition.”
”We have to play the third place even though this is not the game we were wishing for. We will do our best to win.”
