A draw against Canada normally isn’t a good result for Ghana, but considering the number of regulars out of the team, then it wasn’t a bad performance.
Coach Avram Grant gave his reaction to the 1-1 draw in Tuesday’s international friendly match at the RFK Stadium in Washington DC, in the United States of America.
“It was a good friendly match for us. It was a good opportunity for us to see other players,” Grant said at the press conference in the USA.
Sporting Kansas City defender Marcel De Jong scored for Canada from a free kick. Ghana scored with Middlesbrough winger Albert Adomah.
“Of course we want to win in all games but we used this friendly game to try a lot of things and it gave me a lot to think about.
“It was very important that other players who were normally not in the team to get an opportunity to play,” said the former Chelsea manager.
The likes of Asamoah Gyan, Andre Ayew, Christian Atsu, Baba Rahman, Jonathan Mensah and Kwadwo Asamoah were missing due to injuries and the timing of Visas.
Grant was able to assess fringe players such as Ofosu Ayeh, Kwadwo Poku, Lloyd Sam and Gideon Baah.
