Kwesi Appiah ‘can’t state enough how important’ Ghana’s 4-0 win over Sudan is, and has dedicated the victory to Ghanaian soccer fans.

The Black Stars produced a four-star performance to down the Nile crocodile at the intimidating Baba Yara stadium on Sunday to move just a point behind Zambia in the race to top group D.

Spartak Moscow new recruit Abdul Majeed Waris stole the spotlight with a great goal and an assist to power the West African giants to the heavy win at home.

The 21-year-old produced a typically clinical header to break their opponent after Asamoah Gyan and Mubarak Wakaso had given the Ghanaians a 2-0 first half lead.

Udinese midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu who replaced injured Gyan sealed the win with the fourth goal to offer the trainer a massive ‘relief’.

Appiah dedicated the ‘important’ win to the passionate Ghanaian soccer fans whose unflinching support to the team was well-noticed.

“It was really important that we try to get a win today, it was an important game not for me but for Ghanaians,” Appiah said

“Our main aim is to try and qualify the nation to the World Cup and to do that we needed to win tonight’s game order to progress to the next stage.”

The Black Stars will battle Sudan and Lesotho in away games in June before hosting Zambia in an eagerly awaited clash.

    I will first like to congratulate you for the emphatic win.
    Secondly, I noticed that u put ego aside this time arnd and listened to wise advise. The advices I say most forumites giving were
    1. Play 2 strikers
    2. Make Sulley Muntari the captain
    These simple changes made a big difference.
    Final advice; Put your NASTY ego aside and call players purely based on merits and not favoritism.
    I however still believe that, you do not have what it takes to manage the black stars. You either need a management team comprising of people like Stephen Appiah and Sammy Kufuour or just let a more experienced coach lead the team.
    I think you’ve matured a lot from the laughable showing at the last AFCON seeing this game. The Black stars is however not a team a coach should be using for ‘on the job’ training.
    Once again CONGRATULATIONS!!
