The Ghana Black Stars lost their second game of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa on Monday evening.
Ghana had a single shot on target the entire game with the closest Ghana went near the goalkeeper William's goal was when Joel Fameyeh was tripped when he was through on goal.
The resulting free kick was fiercely struck by Wakaso Mubarak but the goalkeeper held firm without any trouble.
Speaking after the game the Belgium trainer says that he did not have the believe that his side would beat Ghana and only envisaged a draw.
“I am very proud and happy today with what I saw on the pitch of my team,” he said with a broad smile after the match.
“We have made big progress in just a week. When I saw my team play in Zimbabwe there was no confidence, no determination, no belief in themselves [players], but I saw a team with lots of confidence today.
“We played a very good game. There was determination. There was the will to winning, there was discipline and that is what I like.
“We have four points from six now. A few days ago I said if we get four from six I would be happy but I thought that we could win in Zimbabwe and play a draw against Ghana. But it is the opposite now and am very much happy about that.
“We will see, if we can go on like this and make progress like we did this week, we will see where we will be at the end of the race.”
The first half ended 0-0 as Ghana would count themselves lucky as a Percy Tau header was wrongly flagged offside as the Al Ahly forward appeared to be onside.
Ghana came up a bit better in the second half but it was the Bafana Bafana who made it count as in the 83rd minute as Maritzburg United striker Bongokuhle Hlongwane cushioned a cross into the far corner to open the scores for South Africa Read Full Story
