Beninois coach, Michel Dussuyer, believes his team played well against Ghana in their 2-2 draw at the Ismailia Stadium on Tuesday night.
The French coach emphasised that it was not easy to possess the ball against the Black Stars and that he was glad that his attackers lived up to expectation.
“A victory against Ghana would have allowed us to complete the Group with at least four points as I know we can get a draw somewhere. Playing and holding Ghana is good; it is very difficult to possess the ball against this Ghana team.” Dussuyer stated after the game.
“We played to our strength, the speed of our attackers was good and that got us the result. The two goals from Mickael Pote will build his confidence more,” he added.
The draw against a 10-man Ghana side was Benin’s best ever against any top flight team in all the 10 AFCON games so far in their history.
The Squirrels will take on Guinea Bissau in their next game, while Ghana also battle defending champions, Cameroun, on Saturday.
