The Black Stars must approach their last group game against South Africa with the same determination and commitment they displayed against the Algerians on Friday, this is the advice from ex-Captain Stephen Appiah. Striker Asamoah Gyan scored for Ghana deep into injury-time to give the Black Stars a lifeline in the Africa Cup of Nations 2015 in Equatorial Guinea.
The win puts the four-time African champions in a somewhat stable position after losing their opening game against Senegal.
Many believed the Black Stars would lose against the number one ranked team in Africa after a turgid display against Senegal on Monday.
Speaking on Extra Time with Henry Asante Twum on Starr 103.5FM, Saturday, the former Juventus star said the Black Stars can only qualify from their group if they maintain their composure and team spirit which gave them the victory against the North Africans.
He added that the Black Stars must also guard against complacency and approach the Bafana Bafana game with discipline.
Appiah, who recently retired was, however, elusive on the chances of the Black Stars saying they have what it takes to win the tournament but must focus on qualifying from their group.
