Ghana coach Akwasi Appiah has attributed his team’s impressive 4-0 win over Sudan to his players’ strict adherence to his tactics.
The Black Stars smashed their visitors in the 2014 World Cup qualifier with goals coming from Asamoah Gyan, Mubarak Wakso, Abdul Majeed Waris and Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu.
The win saw Ghana reduce Zambia’s lead in Group D to just one point as the race for the group’s sole progressive ticket heats up.
Many reasons have been ascribed to the superlative performance of the Black Stars before a packed crowd at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
But coach Appiah says his players were ‘tactically disciplined’ – the reason he believes was responsible for his team’s impressive win on Sunday.
“I believe tactically the players were really disciplined and they played their best to get the win for the nation,” he said after the game.
“The team is in a building process, we are trying to get a winsome side.
“But I was impressed tactically how we defended and how we attacked the opponent.
“There were a few lapses which are normal but we will make sure we make amends in our next game but overall the performance was really good.”
Ghana will now play back-to-back away games against Sudan and Lesotho in June before hosting Zambia in the final group game in September.
