"I don't think it was the counterattack because running with the ball is different," he told 3 Sports as quoted by GHANASoccernet.
"It was when I was running back, you know we were down 2-0 and then it was like five minutes to go and there was a counter against us, so I had recovered back. I saw a player who was free, so I had to sprint. I was not even running fast," he added.

Sulemana played less than sixty minutes in Qatar, making substitute appearances at the World Cup. Injuries have hampered the progress of the young winger, a setback he is hoping to avoid ahead of the resumption of Ligue 1.

"I've been getting a lot of injuries and it frustrating. My priority is to stay fit and be on the pitch more," he continued.
