Jerry Akaminko has been hailed by compatriot Sulley Muntari

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari has praised defensive duo Rashid Sumaila and Jerry Akaminko for their sterling performances during the World Cup victory against Egypt.

The two centre-backs played together for the first time in Ghana colours and excelled at the Baba Yara stadium in front of a packed crowd.

Even though Sumaila conceded a penalty, the AC Milan star has labeled the duo as the most impressive players on the pitch.

?Everybody did their best on the day but I believe Rashid and Jerry were our best players,? Muntari said

?I was on the pitch and I can say that they were the best players. They had not played together but they combined effectively.

?It is because Rashid and Akaminko were resolute at the back and we should not gloss over their solid performance.?
