The Ghana National team, the Black Stars and their coach, Milovan Rajevac have come under immense pressure and criticism from Ghanaians following another disappointing in their second African Cup of Nations (AFCON) game against Gabon.
Taking the lead in the 19th minute of yesterday’s game, the Black Stars chose to defend their slender lead presumably on the orders of their coach and they came close to seeing their lead out until the 90th minute when they were dealt a soccer punch by the Gabonese team.
And after playing 2 out of 3 games in the African Cup of Nations, Ghana are with only a point and will now have to win their last group game against Comoros and hope that the other group game turns out in their favour if they hope to qualify out of Group C and into the next round of the AFCON
Speaking in to the press in a post match conference, Ghana’s Serbian coach noted that he makes changes based on the flow of the game and how he feels at that very moment.
Responding to a question by Gary Al-Smith on his proactiveness and lack thereof, Rajevac said: “We have the players we have at our disposal. As every coach, sometimes feel I feel players can be injured or something. So I take those decision as I feel, and I stand by them.”
He also said: “We already had 3 points in our pocket, but same as in the first match. But same as in the first match, we had a loss of concentration. [That said] we have one point and in the last game, we’ll qualify.”
