Gyan, Kwabena Owusu should have come on earlier - Fans react to Ghana draw with Cameroon

Ghana Black Stars play videoGhana Black Stars

Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has been urged to be bold and be timely with his substitutions.

The Black Stars drew 0-0 with defending Champions Cameroon in their second Group F game of the 2019 AFCON ongoing in Egypt.

The team has now managed just two points from a possible six leaving the game against Guinea Bissau a must win.

The introductions of Asamoah Gyan and Kwabena Owusu in the game gave the Black Stars some firepower and enabled the team to create some decent chances which were unfortunately fluffed.

Some Ghanaians who watched the game at the Ismailia Stadium in Egypt believe that the Black Stars would have won the match had Gyan and Owusu come on earlier.

They expressed satisfaction with the result observing that the players’ performance today was an improvement on Tuesday’s disappointing draw with Benin but hold that the result would have been better had Kwesi Appiah been bold and timely with his substitutions.

The Black Stars will return to action on Tuesday in a win or bust game against the less-fancied Guinea-Bissau.
