"I have confidence in the Ghanaian team, although we are young, we are playing good football, today wasn't the best of football but I'm sure we going to improve in the next game," he said on SuperSport.

The Black Stars next play Gabon, who defeated Comoros Island in their first game with star players Pierre Emerick Aubamayeng and Mario Lemina, after they contracted COVID-19.

They still remain doubts for the Ghana game until they return negative of the virus.
