Ghana score in Durban (Gallo)

Durban - Ghana assistant coach Maxwell Konadu says Tuesday's friendly against South Africa in Durban was good exercise for the West African giants.

Despite the Ghanaians' domination throughout the game, Bafana Bafana held the Black Stars to a 1-1 draw in an entertaining encounter at the Moses Mabhida stadium.

Ghana opened the scoring courtesy of Mubarak Wakaso from the penalty spot while Bafana leveled matters thanks to an Ayanda Patosi strike.

"We knew how Bafana Bafana play and I think we didn’t do bad at all." Said Konadu

"We have a good team with skillful players so in general I can say that it was a good match.

"It was a good exercise for us and we have spotted our mistakes and we’ll go home and correct them.

"And hopefully we’ll do better next time."

Meanwhile, midfielder Wakaso extended his praises to his team-mates, citing that they worked together as a team.

The Tamale-born speedster had a stellar game in the middle of the park and walked away with the man of the match accolade.

"I have to extend my praises to my team-mates; they did a splendid job on the pitch," said Wakaso.

"I did not do it on my own, we played as a team and I’m happy with my performance and the way the team played.

"Yes, we didn’t win the game but we’ll take the draw."
