Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah believes his side have been boosted for the start of the World Cup after demolishing South Korea 4-0 in Miami on Monday night in their final warm-up match.
The ex-international and captain named a strong starting line-up including skipper Asamoah Gyan and world cup veteran Sulley Muntari as they fine tune for next Mondayâ€™s Group G opener against USA.
Ghana looked defensively organized and survived several onslaughts but dismantled their Asian opponents with some clinical finishing.
Hat-trick hero Jordan Ayew opened the scoring with a deflected effort on 11 minutes and Asamoah Gyan doubled the lead with a sublime finish in the 44th minute.
Ayew again was on target with a powerful shot from outside the box and the Marseille striker drilled in the fourth goal by connecting Albert Adomahâ€™s cross from the right.
â€œI think it was a really good friendly match. This being our last game it was important we put up a good team and the opposing team also proved that they are really a good side,â€ Appiah said in a post match conference.
â€œMost of the times friendlies, fine, you have to win but I normally donâ€™t look at the score line, I look at tactically how we played individually and how we played as a team.
â€œI believe that everyone who paid to come here has got his monies worth.â€
Ghana will leave for Brazil on Tuesday and will be in Maceio, their team camp base, to prepare for tough assignments in Group G against Portugal and Germany too.
