Mali Looking Forward for Final Match After Ghana Defeat

Mali’s tactician Patrice Carteron refused to blame his players for their 1-0 defeat against Ghana in the African Cup of Nations on Thursday, stating that the Black Star were simply better on that game. Carteron said that there’s no issue with their midfield performance or any part as they were just outplayed by their opponent especially in the first half.

That defeat doesn’t lower Carteron’s confidence over their qualification chances, although the tactician stated that they must win their final group game in order to advance. The head coach also urged his players to immediately forget about their defeat as they must prepare for their next encounter.
