Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah wants to see the new generation of players reach their prime as he stresses the need to continue building.

Appiah arrived at the World Cup parading the youngest squad with an average age of 24.9.

Though the Black Stars have exited the competition after the first round, Appiah, who included 15 World Cup debutants hopes his players learn from the disappointing experience.

"It's been really great. We brought in so many young players who I am trying to build for the future," Appiah said.

"I believe they did really well. I hope in a year or two, their confidence will rise t benefit the nation."

Appiah, the first national to lead Ghana to the World Cup admits that it was an experience for him as well.

"We face tough opposition. Germany are the second best and Portugal are the third-best in the World. To be able to compete with them, I believe we did really okay."
