Black Satellites Coach Jimmy Cobblah does not want to rule out his side’s chances of making it to the World Cup despite losing to Senegal.
Ghana’s quest to Poland 2019 was kept in a balance after losing 2-0 to Senegal in their second group match.
The three-time Champions suffered their first defeat having won their opening group game against Burkina Faso.
Jimmy Cobblah remains optimistic about his side’s chances of making it to the World Cup despite the defeat to Senegal.
“I don’t know where that is coming from, saying Mali is the second favorite team, but that is their choice, we will go in very strongly as we said,” he said in a post-match conference.
“We came into this tournament and people we seeing us to be the weakest team because there was no competition in our country, and in our preparation we were losing but I want to say that we will never go out without a medal, we are sure of qualifying to the World Cup on the day when we meet Mali.”
Ghana will need to avoid defeat at the hands of Mali in their final group match on Saturday to confirm their place at the World Cup.
