Best of Ghana yet to come



Ghana's assistant coach Maxwell Konadu believes the four-time champions are yet to hit their best form. This, despite being on top of Group B following a draw against DR Congo and a win against Mali.

"I don't think we've played our best game yet, I think the boys can still improve," Konadu told the press.

He may be right. The Black Stars hit the Leopards for 2-0, before allowing LeRoy's men back into it. Some of the tactical decisions from coach Appiah drew stick, and he duly worked on them in the second game.

But even then, the 1-0 win against Mali was nervy at best. Maxwell Konadu continued with his assessment of the team, urging the Ghana team to be better in the coming games.

"What you've seen so far has been good but not the best from us, so we just hope we will get the best out of the boys."

The needs a draw against Niger to guarantee a place in the quarterfinals, and a win to be certain of top place in the group — against a team that has conceded once in two games.

Kwesi Appiah, meanwhile, is guarding against overconfidence. Ghana's victory over Mali straightened that out and moved the team to the brink of the last eight, but despite being bottom of the group, Niger was still worthy of close attention after both the Malians and the free-spirited Congolese struggled to break Gernot Rohr's robust team down.
