'We are going to give Cameroon a good game' – Kwesi Appiah

Head coach of the Ghana Black Stars, Kwesi Appiah, has said his side will give Cameroon a good challenge as they seek to record their first win in the second game of Group F, at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), at the Ismailia Stadium on Saturday, June 29.

According to coach Appiah, Ghana would approach the game with all the needed seriousness and aggression in a bid to securing a vital win to cushion the Stars into the final group game against Guinea-Bissau on July 2, at Suez Stadium.

Cameroon tops group F with three points after beating Guinea-Bissau 2-0 in the group opener as Ghana played a 2:2 draw game against Benin.

In a post-match press conference after the game, Coach Appiah noted that he had so much confidence in his team, heading into the next games.

“I have enough confidence in my team, despite our draw in the opening game.

“Ghana, for some years, does not get a good start in competitions, but as I said, any team playing with 10 men in any game and competition finds it really difficult.

“We are done with the first game and have to put that behind us and prepare for Cameroon.

“We are going to give Cameroon a really good game come Saturday and I am sure we will end victors,” he concluded.

The former Asante Kotoko and Black Stars defender noted that in modern football, there were no minnows or underdogs, hence he does not underrate any team.

“There are no minnows in football again because each country that has qualified for the continental showpiece deserves it so I don’t underrate any team going into a tournament because any team that has qualified means the team is really strong,” he noted.
