The Black Stars of Ghana were held to a goalless draw by Côte d’Ivoire at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Saturday in a friendly game.
The two teams used the game as preparations for the upcoming 2022 World Cup qualifiers in September.
The Black Stars coach named a strong starting line up with Thomas Partey returning to the squad after missing the game against Morocco on Tuesday.
It was a good display from the two African giants in this friendly exercise which ended goalless after regulation time.
Speaking after the game Black Stars coach Charles Kwabla Akonnor said the team still needs to improve before the World Cup qualifiers, “What we have done in Morocco and today’s game shows a lot of improvement”.
“We still have a lot to improve in the attacking area. If there is anybody anywhere that is good we will hand in a call up. But for now we have to work on those available because without goals you can’t win games”.
The Black Stars next assignment will be in September against Ethiopia in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
