Ghana’s Black Galaxies coach Annor Walker says his players for the opening Group C defeat to Madagascar at the 2022 Africa Nations Championship on Sunday in Constantine.
Ghana suffered a 2-1 defeat to the newcomers after sloppy defending at either side of half time.
“I think my boys disappointed me in the first half and I take it as one of those things that happen in football. We were well prepared for this game, but minor mistakes cost us the game,” he said after the game.
“Such things happen in football. It happens in competitions that big teams lose their opening games. We may have lost but we are certainly not out of the competition yet,” he added.
“Madagascar played well in the first half, but we also did not have our usual rhythm. Apart from that, I did not see anything different from them.”
“They were possessing the ball quite well, but I believe we could have done better ourselves and these are the things we will need to look at and remedy ahead of our next match on Thursday,” he continued.
“I still need to analyse the game and to make a proper judgement on where exactly we went wrong and how it needs to be fixed.”
Ghana lost 2-1 to Madagascar in their first game and will play Sudan in their last group game on Thursday evening.
