Defender Abdul Baba Rahman has lauded his fellow Black Stars teammates for their resounding victory over Congo in Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier.
The Black Stars improved on a lackluster performance against the central African side in Kumasi by thrashing their counterparts 5-1 in Kintele to revive their World Cup hopes.
A hat-trick from Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey and a brace from striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom got Ghana back in contention for a slot at the World Cup.
Baba Rahman who has been away from the team with injury has hailed his colleagues for the convincing win on Tuesday.
Congratulations @ghanafaofficial …well done guys ????????????????…still believe ????????????????????????

The Black Stars were the better side on the day as they out-powered their counterparts despite early threats from the host.
Boakye-Yiadom silenced the vociferous home crowd with a cool tap in goal in 26 minutes before Thomas Partey smashed home from close range 3minutes later after capitalizing on a rebound.
Congo defender Emmerson pulled a goal back for the host with a powerful header from a corner kick before Partey restored Ghana’s two-goal cushioning by squeezing the ball from an acute angle to send Coach Kwesi Appiah’s side into the break with a comfortable lead.
Partey got his third and Ghana’s fourth on the day from a gifted pass at a dangerous position and the 23-year-old made no mistake as his slotted the ball into the net.
Yiadom rounded-up victory with a cool drive after a pass from Harrison Afful with just 4 minutes to end proceedings.
Ghana will play as guest to Uganda in the next qualifier in October this year.
