It could easily have been Ghana celebrating a win rather than a draw against Germany, Kwesi Appiah feels.
The Black Stars had to settle for a point, rather than three, against the European giants if they been more clinical in their second group game.
“It was a really good competitive game, we all know Germany is the second best in the whole world and playing them was always going to be difficult,” Appiah said at the post-match press conference.
Ghana had lost their first game to the USA and needed not to lose on Saturday night. But a slow first half and an inspired second left fans feeling that it could have been a Stars victory being talked about.
Goals from Andre Ayew and Asamoah Gyan were followed by at least two gilt-edged chances that should have been converted.
“We had some chances to extend our lead but playing a big team like Germany, if you don’t take your chances, things become very difficult.”
Ghana will now hope Portugal beats the USA on Sunday for any real chance of going through Group G alive. Otherwise, the Black Stars will take a plane home.
