Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has called on government to channel resources into uplifting the state of the pitch at the Accra Sports stadium after the team’s 7-1 victory over Mauritius on Sunday.

A brace each from Gyan and highly impressive Jordan Ayew coupled with goals each from Christian Atsu, Jeffrey Schlupp and David Accam ensured that Mauritian Sophine Jean Pierre’s goal was only a consolation in their 7-1 thumping of the visitors.

Before the game both Gyan and coach of the side Avram Grant had bitterly complained about the state of the pitch with the excessive use clearly having an effect on the pitch.

‘The pitch wasn’t good but we had to adapt so we can be able to get this victory that we all desired,’ The Al Ain striker told the press after the game

‘We were aided by the weather which helped us a bit I am appealing to government to help improve the pitch here at the Accra sports stadium.’

Ghana’s heavy win puts them in pole position in group H ahead of Rwanda who got an important away victory against Mozambique.
