Ghana coach Charles Akonnor refused to blame the absence of British players for the 10 defeats in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa. On Monday night,
Black Stars beat first place in Group G with a score of 10 games. With their famous victory at the FNB Stadium, Bafana Bafana now leads the group.
Akonnor was forced to switch teams that defeated Ethiopia because some of their players who played in England returned to their club because South Africa is one of the countries on the UK's red list of travel restrictions.
"Covid has affected everyone. We know about this situation. That is why we made plan B. Yesterday they asked me the same question. I think FIFA and CAF should solve this problem because we are deprived of this advantage. It’s not good, but it’s not an excuse, because we came here and did what we can. Especially at the first. Half, but we lost," Akonnor said.
Ghana will now play against Zimbabwe in a back-to-back match next month.
