Kwesi Appiah bemoans missed chances after Kenya defeat
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has lamented his team's failure to take their chances after a shocking 1-0 defeat to Kenya in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.
After an emphatic 5-0 win over Ethiopia in the opening game, Ghana were confident of victory against a depleted Kenyan side but their lack of killer instinct in front of goal proved costly as the Harambee Stars claimed a famous win.
The Black Stars created as many as 13 goalscoring chances but failed to get a goal, something Kwesi Appiah is struggling to come to terms with it.
"We had a lot of chances but it’s just unfortunate we couldn’t utilize any," Appiah said. "I believe Kenya did well but we could have done better with the chances we had. We should have at least converted them."
Ghana will seek to recover from the Nairobi setback with a home game against Sierra Leone in October.
