Kwesi Appiah promises to give opportunities to more players

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has promised to give opportunities to more players as he builds a strong team to win silverware.

The returnee named ten debutants in his first call-up for the qualifier against Ethiopia.

Appiah decided to hand debuts to striker Raphael Dwamena, who bagged a brace, and multiple assist provider winger Thomas Agyepong.

Left-back Lumor Agbeyenu excelled and lasted the entire duration in the 5-0 drubbing.

"It was a great performance from the players but more players will come into the team," Appiah said in a post-match interview.

"We have to look at the long term goal and the immediate goal, and my ambition is to build a team for the future. So more players will have to come in so we have a formidable squad.''
