Wakaso hails teammates after wining Man of the Match award

Black Stars midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has thanked his teammates and fans after picking up the Man of the Match award in the 2-0 win over Guinea-Bissau on Tuesday.

Second half strikes from Jordan Ayew and Thomas Partey secured Ghana a place in the knockout stage of the Africa Cup of Nations.

“First of all I need to thank my teammates, the whole Ghana and my fans for the support and prayers,” Wakaso told reporters after receiving the award.

The result sees Ghana top Group F on goal difference ahead of Cameroon who played out a barren draw with Benin another simultaneous kick-off in Ismailia.

Ghana will now face the runners-up of Group E while Cameroon takes on Nigeria in a mouthwatering last 16 encounter.
