Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic is delighted with the depth of his squad after drawing 1-1 with England on Tuesday night in a friendly.

The game in Wembley played before a crowd of 80,102 saw mass substitutions in the second half by both sides but it did not alter the tempo of the entertaining draw.

The positive performance by the Black Stars has left Stevanovic no doubt of building a team capable of challenging for major honours in future.

Stevanovic made six changes to his team in the course of the game with Daniel Opare coming on in the second half.

The Standard Liege full-back on loan from Real Madrid played at left back and put in a display which Stevanovic says puts him a good stead of being part of his plans in the long term.

"I am impressed about Daniel Opare. He was very good and I think for the future he will be very important for the future," the Ghana coach said.
