Ghana vice captain, Kwadwo Asamoah, has admitted he did not play his best game against Cameroon because of the position he was assigned.The Inter Milan versatile midfielder was deployed in a left sided midfield role, just ahead of left back Baba Rahman in Ghana’s Group F clash against the Indomitable Lions which ended 0-0.
The 30 year old struggled to impose himself in the game and was subsequently replaced by General Captain Asamoah Gyan with 15 minutes to time.
“It wasn’t the best game for me because I know what I can do when I play my normal position. I had difficulties in terms of positions but defensively it wasn’t a problem for me.
“I was playing as a left sided midfielder which I’m not very comfortable with but I’m so happy with the result and I tried to do my best for the team,” Asamoah said told journalists after the game.
Asamoah has continuously stressed his desire to play more centrally in the Black Stars set up and his absence from the team that drew 2-2 against Benin particularly raised eyebrows.
The draw leaves Ghana needing to beat Guinea Bissau in their last game on Tuesday to qualify to the round of 16.
