We at Football Made in Ghana compiled out impression of some player performances.
Adam Kwarasey: Fears of a ‘Disaster Adam’ should be waning by now. Adam had a good game [7/10].
Harrison Afful: He did his best, but on a few occassions Harrison gave us the impression that more depth is required at the Right Back position [5/10].
Razak Nuhu: The debutant did not have a great start for his nation. To many times he had problems in difence. Some people may think his was the primary cause of the penalty awarded to Ghana. Had he been positionally apt, Lee Addy would have had less to do [4/10].
John Mensah: Form and age are John Mensah’s enemies. Other than that, while on the pitch, our Rocky Captain was at his best [6/10].
Isaac Vorsah: In Vorsah, the Black Stars have a solid and imposing defender to look up to. He lived to his ‘Enforcer’ title against the Chinese forwards [7/10].
Anthony Annan: Will this petite Midfield General ever lose the ball? Great performance from him [7/10].
Derek Boateng: Derek was in his usual elements, creating good opportunities for the forwards. He himself had a good chance to score but was denied by the Chinese goal keeper. Some of Derek’s tackles however left much to be desired [6/10].
Kwadwo Asamoah: This young man seems to have stepped up his game a notch. He had a beautiful game. A delight to watch. Thanks to his corner kick, Ghana was able to equalize [8/10].
Frank Acheampong: Another debutante who did not meet the tall expectation – not for the want of good performances, but the shoes he hopes to step in are huge. Quite a good performance [5/10].
Christian Atsu Twasam: The potential of this kid was on display again. He worked hard on the day [6/10]
Emmanuel Clottey: Was lost all day. Was he keeping his legs for that crucial African Champions League clash with Egyptian Giants Al Ahly? [4/10]
