Ghana 'almost' ready - Appiah



Abu Dhabi, UAE A 3-0 win should usually boost morale in the camp of the victorious team, and that's exactly what is happening in the Black Stars camp, although Kwesi Appiah is exactly everyone to remain calm.

Ghana won 3-0 against Egypt, and at a canter in the first of two prep friendlies before South Africa 2013 at the Zayed Sports City Stadium here in Abu Dhabi on Thursday evening.

"This is our first trial game and you know we are preparing a team that is representing Ghana in South Africa. The main fact that the players are not always with us makes it a bit difficult, but I don't really care about the scores." he told Supersport.com's Gary Al-Smith after the game.

"Whether they score us ten-nil or we score ten, I don't care," he stressed.

The coach went on to outline the three things he was looking for and how the team responded to instructions.

"The most thing is tactically how we defended, and then whenever we went on the counter attacks, how we finished our attacks. I was also looking at the setpieces, how we implemented our corner kicks and freekicks. ANd I think I will give the team seventy percent, which is good."

The Stars play Tunisia in two days, in a game which is expected to much tougher than Egypt's.
