On the performance of the team, Asamoah insisted “we did not play very well. We lost the balls too many times. I can only do well by possessing more and pressing; which was lacking in our game.
“We were frustrated through out. The important thing now is to work harder in out next games to make amends because today was very disappointing.’
The player insists he is not pressured by the big player tag placed on him at the one to carry the Black Stars cause for a fifth Nations Cup glory that spans over three decades.
