2017 AFCON: Avram Grant Elated With Ghana’s Win Over Uganda

Ghana coach Avram Grant has expressed joy over his side’s 1-0 win against Uganda on Tuesday in Group D clash in Port Gentil.

Ghana needed Andre Ayew’s first half spot kick to tame the Cranes, after the East African side took control of the game in the second half.

Though the three points is very important for the former Chelsea boss, but he believed his charges could have played better against Uganda.

“I’m happy with the three points. We could have played better but winning is the most important in tournaments like this. We had to take on the pressure in the second half but at the end of the day I am happy,” he said.

“Uganda is a very tough team and playing against them is never easy. We got a few chances but we won. The second game will be different but there are no easy games in this tournament.

“We shall wait and see Baba Rahman’s injury. It is only the first game and the most important is to win. Andre and Jordan Ayew had a good team. In the second half we were a bit fatigued and the players wanted to keep the threee oints, and we played in a clever way to win the game.”
