Kwesi Appiah draws positives from Mexico and USA friendlies
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah insists there were lots of positives from his side's friendly engagements in the United States.
The Black Stars lost against Mexico and USA but the gaffer is not getting bogged down.
Appiah thought the friendlies tested his charges ahead of the resumption of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers in August against Congo.
''These exercises gave other players the needed opportunity to justify their inclusion into the Black Stars. I have fair idea about five to seven players that I think we can add up to what we have,'' he said in a post-match interview.
''In a national team, we shouldn’t rely on a single player. I always believe that we have so many good players out there and it is about time we gave more players the opportunity and if they come and they are good, we add them to the team as backups for the regular players.
''A strong team is a team that has a strong bench so when we add some other good players to the regular once, it will help us build a strong national team.''
