Kwesi Appiah hails 'important' Sudan win for Ghanaians
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.
