Black Galaxies head coach Annor Walker revealed that he took some time to calm his men down after they conceded the first goal against Sudan.
Ghana managed to win the game 3-1 thanks to strikes from Konadu Yiadom, Suraj Seidu and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh.
“My players looked surprised after conceding the goal. When I got the opportunity to talk to them I psyched them up and let them know it was not over yet. I told them we can really make it and I made them know it’s not over until it is all over,” he said after the game.
“We knew we don’t have supporters here and we wouldn’t get much support at the stadium. We relied on ourselves to fight to survive. We saw the fans shouting in support of Sudan and we knew we had to fight for ourselves and that’s what made us successful.”
Ghana now await their quarterfinals opponents after gaining six points in Group C.
