AFCON 2019: Okocha disappointed by Ghana’s performance

By Football256 Team

Several spectators in the football fraternity were so far left disappointed by Ghana’s performance at the ongoing 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Among them is the Nigeria legend Augustine ‘Jay-Jay’ Okocha who attributes Ghana’s poor performance to its head coach Kwesi Appiah’s poor tactics and game approaches.

“Kwesi Appiah’s job is on the line, he has to make sure the players perform well at this tournament and win the trophy,” Okocha was quoted by www.footballghana.com.

“He has been given a second chance to prove himself after what happened in Brazil but with what we have witnessed in the two matches played,” he added.

The Black Stars have failed to get a win in their two opening games at the tournament, they drew 2-2 with Benin in their opening game before playing to a goalless draw with defending champions Cameroon.

“I am personally disappointed in him [Kwesi Appiah] and I know Ghanaians are disappointed because they were expecting a better performance against Cameroon. He has to win against Guinea Bissau to keep his job going forward,” he added.

Ghana are currently second on the Group F log with just two points, they need to collect all three points in their last group match to secure a slot in the round of last 16.

The Four-time winners will take Guinea Bissau who are on the bottom of the table with one point on Tuesday July 2nd.

Guinea Bissau are also looking for three points from this encounter to stand a chance of knockout stage qualification.

The Andre Ayew captained side is aiming at ending the 37-year Africa Cup of Nations drought, they last won the trophy in 1982 when they defeated hosts Libya 7-6 on penalties after a one all stalemate in normal time.
