Rashid Sumaila is grateful for the support he received from fans Rashid Sumaila is grateful for the support he received from fans

Ghana defender Rashid Sumaila has thanked local fans for their total support despite conceding a penalty in their 6-1 win over Egypt.

The 20-year-old conceded a penalty after bringing down striker Mohammed Salah in the first half with the resultant kick expertly converted by Mohamed Aboutrika.

But the Mamelodi Sundowns centre-back never waned in confidence and put up a solid display at the back for the Black Stars.

The ex-Ebusua Dwarfs defender has showered praise on the local fans for the support he received despite the set-back.

?I am very grafetul to the fans for the support they gave me especially,? Sumaila said

?When I conceded that penalty they never gave up and continued to support me.

?I never intended for that thing to happen. But I guess its part of the game and I have learnt my lessons.

?I promise not to repeat that mistake which cost us the penalty. The mistake will only make me a better player.

?But like I said I am thankful for the support.?

Sumaila has since joined his South African Sundowns after the international break.
