“I am very happy the way [the] game went and I have to credit my colleagues who have aided me to settle in well.
“We are turning our attention to the next game after this impressive point.”
Both Awal and Gyan were members of Ghana’s AFCON squad which finished second in the just Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.
