Appiah looks for Meteors spark

12 years ago

Kwesi Appiah is desperate to march one step beyond in All Africa Games men's competition when Ghana meets Cameroon in the semi-finals.

The Black Meteors play the defending champions tomorrow with the winner playing either Senegal or South in the finals of the competition on Saturday.

It is Appiah's debut as a head coach of the Olympic team, after taking over in the final qualifiers for the All Africa Games and he is keen to win the finals.

After a slow start, Ghana bounced back to beat host, Mozambique 4-3 in the final group game to secure a place in the semi-finals and Appiah is now hoping to build on that success.

"We have to work on the areas of weaknesses and be more clinical in front of goal," Appiah said.

"I require a good and performance in the next game. At least that is the only game we can think of for now and we are motivated to win."

The Ghana coach wants his side to find some consistency and avoid letting in goals.

"We allowed in three avoidable goals in the last match. That could have been avoided. I am hopeful that we won repeat the same mistakes."
