Badu: Mozambique draw not a bad result

Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has played down Sunday’s draw with Mozambique in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The Black Stars were held to a goalless stalemate at the Estadio do Zimpeto in Maputo, three days after dispatching the Mambas 3-1 in the first leg encounter at the Accra Sports Stadium.

“It’s not all that bad but we have so many rooms to improve,” Badu said.

“We will keep going. Congratulations to Mozambique. They have a very wonderful team, comfortable on the ball, played with combination passes but we didn’t allow them and you could see they had one chance in the game.

“I think Mozambique were tactically disciplined. They didn’t give us the spaces to play our own game. In all, we [Black Stars] got a couple of chances which we should have [converted] to win the game but couldn’t. That’s football.

“We got one point and we are keeping [our eyes on] everything ahead of us. I think we have one home game and one away game. If we can win one, we will qualify for Afcon 2017.”

Ghana have opened a four-point lead in Group H ahead of Rwanda’s home fixture with Mauritius on Tuesday.
