Black Stars coach CK Akonnor has admitted that his team did not impress but did enough to edge Ethiopia 1-0 in the World Cup qualifiers.
China-based Mubarak Wakaso’s first-half strike gave Ghana all the spoils in the Group G encounter.
The win has seen Ghana move to the top of Group G after Zimbabwe and South Africa stalemate in the other clash.
CK Akonnor, in his post-match interview, said his outfit managed to do the most important thing in football. The gaffer added that with time the team will score more goals.
“We managed to win. It was a very difficult game. We were not too exciting as we were expected to play I must admit. But we managed to win the three points which is the most important thing,” Akonnor said at the post-match press conference.
“If you watch our game, we create a lot of chances. This same chances [we converted] against Qatar to score five goals. So, it’s not a situation whereby we cannot score goals but now it seems so but I strongly believe we will score goals.
“We are doing well and creating chances. With time it will come”
Ghana’s next action is in Johannesburg against South Africa on Monday at the FNB Stadium while Ethiopia hosts Zimbabwe in the other group encounter.
The Black Stars are chasing a return to the World Cup after missing out on the 2018 edition in Russia.
It will be their fourth appearance at the global showpiece should they qualify for Qatar 2022.
