Ghana Crashed out of the Zonal Championship after the team failed to beat Ivory coast in the second group match played in Kegue in Togo.

“If you look at the way the boys were playing, attacking and trying to get our first goal, although we conceded the first goal, we tried to make sure that we equalized. We were attacking and looking for chances to score. I can say everybody who watched the game yesterday, looking at the attitude of the referee, tells you that the referee didn’t want us to qualify so I can say that the referee contributed a lot to the defeat” a disappointed Fokou told the Ghanafa.org in an interview.

Coach Fokuo stredsed that his side went into the game against Ivory Coast with the right mentality knowing a draw was enough to qualify them, but believes certain events on the day made things difficult for him and his players

“We went into the game with the right approach because we knew we wanted to qualify so we approached the game with the hope of qualification, either we win or draw. It didn’t happen, and sometimes in games, certain things happen and makes you think it wasn’t the right approach for a match but I think we went into the game with a right approach”.

The gaffer believes there are enough equality in the side thatwho could be prepared for future National teams.
