Local Black Stars midfielder, Michael Akuffo says their defeat to Madagascar was due to hard luck. According to him they did everything on the field of play to win the game.

Akuffo who was in the heart of Ghana’s midfield against Madagascar opined that the South African side came into the game to frustrate them.

‘From the blast of the whistle we took command control of the game, we created a lot of goal scoring opportunities which we failed to bury  but Madagascar came into the game with a strategy to frustrate us which worked to their favour and they won the game, it was a painful loss,’ he concluded.

Ghana will now face Zambia at the plate semi final of the ongoing COSAFA Cup competition.
