Despite the hard fought 2-0 triumph by Ghana over Cape Verde to get through the semi-finals of the ongoing 2013 AFCON, there is still massive work to be done.

Demonstrably, any one who watched the match played at the Neslson Mandela stadium in Port Elizabeth could clearly indicate that the word ?luck? was on Black Stars team because they were not in their element.

Generally the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde did not have any thing to loose and was not a bogey side to team Ghana.

In that game incoherence and lack of communication among the back four of Ghana nearly paved way for the Cape Verdians to muddy the waters especially when the down by 1-0 but Fatau Dauda proved his prowess as the best in the local scene and beyond.

Again the central pair of John Boye and Vorsah was nothing to write home about especially in the closing stages of the game created six fouls at the edge of the penalty box and if the Cape Verdians were to have potency to positively utilize such pieces, Ghana could by this time be laughing at the wrong side of its mouth.

The midfield lacked synergy and creativity to possess the ball though they were a goal up. It was terrible that the presence of Kwadzo Asamoah, Christian Atsu and Agyemand Badu all noted for their individual brilliance were chasing their shadows not to talk of Albert Adomah.

However, I will doff my heart out for Mubarak Wakaso for netting two goals to ensure Ghana sealed through into the semi-final against Burkina Faso on Wednesday.

Similarly, the team?s top striker and captain, Asamoah Gyan have not to me justify his captaincy in this very tournament. As a leading striker with a goal just out of four matches speak ill about his striking abilities. He must live up to expectation.

Of course Ghana has won yet there still a massive home work to done as the team cruise into the semi-finals to meet? stallions of Burkina Faso.

Ghana is yet to face a very stiff and compact opposition.
