“He [Ganiu] is not injured. It is just a situation we had and we needed to excuse few players as we could only register 23 players for the match and we needed to invite more players because of the COVID-19 protocols,” Milovan Rajevac told the assembled press in the post match conference.

“They should be proud but it is always a tough decision to choose somebody you think is more appropriate for some games. It was a coach’s decision. It doesn’t mean they are not in contention for the next match. They are with us and part of the team,” he added.

Goals from Mohammed Kudus, Thormas Partey and Andre Ayew won the match for Ghana in a heated contest at the Cape Coast sports stadium.
