2021 AFCON: It was a tough match – Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac on Group C opener against Morocco
Ghana coach, Milovan Rajevac has described playing Morocco as tough as Black Stars lost their opening Group C game at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Sofiane Boufa’s lone strike for Atlas Lions in the 82nd minute sealed a 1-0 win over Milovan Rajevac’s side at the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium on Monday.
Ghana will need to beat Gabon, who defeated Comoros 1-0 in the other group game to stand a chance of progressing to the next stage of the competition.
“It was a tough match and we were expecting that because Morocco is one of the best teams on the continent and it was also the opening match of the group,” coach Rajevac said after the game.
“We did not take our chances in the game and I think the Moroccans were lucky in the end. We were expecting the game to end in a draw.”
He added, “I was to congratulate the Moroccans on their win and my boys for fighting really hard. We have two matches left in the group so we have to concentrate on them so we can progress to the next stage.”
