Black Meteors defender Kingsley Fobi is elated by the win against Algeria, adding they were determined for the victory in the second leg of the Under 23 AFCON final qualifier.
The talented right back, who put up a solid performance in the two legs, mentioned that Ghanaians lost hope in the team following their 1-1 draw with the North Africans in Accra and that spurred them on to victory in Setif on Tuesday.
“The game yesterday was very tough, we drew with them in our home and playing away and seeking a win was not an easy task,” Fobi told Dailymailgh.com
“We were in high spirits and we had only one motive, to give our maximum best and also to qualify. At the end we did just that and won the game.
“A lot of Ghanaians did not believe we could come and beat Algeria at their own backyard but we knew what we were capable of doing and believed in our capabilities. We did it and I am very proud of everyone’s effort,” he added.
Yaw Yeboah netted the match winner for Ghana in the 69th minute with a sweet finish after a fantastic run into the Algerian penalty box.
Ghana have thus booked their place in the Under 23 AFCON slated for Egypt in November this year with qualification to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo still up for grabs.
