Black Stars B defender Amos Frimpong has praised the team's mental toughness after eliminating Gambia from the 2017 WAFU Nations Cup.
The Asante Kotoko right back lasted the entire duration as Ghana needed a late penalty to oust Gambia 1-0 in the tournament opener on Saturday.
Ghana's performance was far from impressive but Frimpong is taking the positives from their win.
"We needed the win at all cost and we were not ready to give up. Everyone could see that the team was mentally tough to have kept on believing even with just two minutes to end the game,'' he told Ghana News Agency.
"The coach urged us not to give up. He said it is not over and we should keep pressing till the additional time ends. Fortunately for us we got a late penalty to win the game.
"We still have room for improvement, so we are going back to the drawing board to correct our mistakes and come back stronger in our subsequent games."
