Ghana vs Mali AFCON 2013 Third Place Playoff Match Preview

Ahead of the AFCON 2013 final on Sunday, two strong sides Ghana and Mali will first match up for the third place playoff this Saturday, a match which had a familiar tune since it also occurred in previous tournament.

Ghana’s tactician, James Kwesi Appiah isn’t interested in rekindling past memories though as he prefers to give credits for his players’ achievement in the tournament as they were unlucky after getting eliminated via penalty shoot out by Burkina Faso.

Meanwhile, Mali head coach Patrice Carteron admitted that their defeat in the semifinal over Nigeria still left a bitter taste in their mouth as they were very keen on reaching the AFCON Final.
