Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has slammed his players for lacking concentration in their 2-2 draw with Benin in their opening Group F clash in Tuesday evening.
Mickael Pote gave Benin a shock lead at the Ismailia Stadium after two minutes but Black Stars skipper Andre Ayew restored parity.
Jordan put Ghana in front with a delightful finish, but Pote earned the Squirrels a point after John Boye was dismissed for a second yellow card.
“It was a good game, we didn’t concentrate in the first half. In the second half it was hard to play with 10 players,” Appiah said in the post-match conference.
“A draw is reasonable. I didn’t lose hope in my team and wait for us in the next game.”
Ghana next play defending champions Cameroon on Saturday.
