Goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has been the biggest talking point in spite of Ghana recording two wins at the 2012 African Cup of Nations.
Kwarasey flapped on three occasions in Saturday’s Group D game against Mali but still kept a second clean sheet at the tournament.
For the Ghana bench, the positives of Kwarasey’s contributions outweighs three missed aerial balls to provoke criticisms.
Assistant Black Stars coach, Kwesi Appiah is backing Kwarasey to come good in the remaining matches and is insisting the shot-stopper will be more comfortable.
“We all saw the game and there were few lapses but we are working hard all the time,” assistant coach Kwesi Appiah said about Kwarasey’s performances.
“There is no way you can get perfection on the pitch. There would be a couple of mistakes that every player does on the pitch.
“The important thing is making sure that he [Kwarasey] always does the right thing in the next game. We are working on all the mistakes that every player did and hopefully we hope that he should be in a perfect condition for the next game.”
However, Kwarasey concedes that, playing for the Black Stars comes with pressure.
The 24 year-old goalkeeper explains that he has to live with the pressures of the game.
“There is always pressure in football and especially when you play for a great nation like Ghana.
“Ofcourse, there is pressure but that’s what we do. We live with pressures and we have to handle it.”
Ghana plays Guinea next in Group on Wednesday.
