Ghana rally back to beat Tunisia 4-2 Behind Closed Doors

Ghana rallied from two goals down to beat Tunisia 4-2 in a friendly in Abu Dhabi on Sunday night.

Two goals from striker Issam Jemma helped the Carthage Eagles to take a two goal lead at the Zayed Sports Complex.

Albert Adomah's debut goal for the Black Stars wrapped up Ghana's second half comeback with John Boye, Mubarak Wakaso and captain Asamoah Gyan all on target in the game played behind closed doors.

The Ghanaian defenders hesitated in the 16th minute following a foul in midfield allowing Jemaa to fire past Adam Kwarasey.

The Kuwait-based striker doubled the lead just after the break when he pounced on a ball which Kwarasey spilled on the second attempt.

The Black Stars showed their fighting spirit with four goals within 25 minutes to seal their second friendly victory during their training tour of the UAE.

John Boye headed in Mubarak Wakaso's freekick in the 56th minute to restore some hope of the four-time African champions.

Wakaso converted a penalty six minutes later after Christian Atsu was brought down in the box to restore parity for the Black Stars.

Asamoah Gyan connected Albert Adomah’s cross from the right to make it 3-2 following a counter-attack.

Gyan turned the provider moments later after outwitting two defenders allowing the Bristol City winger Adomah to fire past the Tunisian goalkeeper with four minutes remaining.

The Black Stars will now turn their attention of playing at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations with their first match against DR Congo next week.

Starting line-up:

Adam Kwarasey/Daniel Agyei, John Paintsil, Kwadwo Asamoah, John Boye/Awal Mohammed, Jonathan Mensah, Derek Boateng, Solomon Asante/Albert Adomah, Rabiu Mohammed/Agyemang Badu, Richmond Boakye Yiadom/Asamoah Gyan, Mubarak Wakaso, Christian Atsu/Richard Kissi Boateng.

It is clear Asamoah Gyan has stopped taking penalties. He walked away calmly after placing the ball on the penalty spot for Wakaso.

Are you half blind? Gyan never touched the ball. Wakaso picked the ball and refused to give it to Badu. Seems like Badu wants to be the PK taker but he didn't get to the ball before Wakaso.

Trabelsi says they played dangerous football against Ghana.

Tunisia coach Sami Trabelsi has described his team’s second half display in the 4-2 defeat to Ghana as ‘dangerous’.

The Carthage Eagles failed to protect a two goal lead as the Black Stars run amok in the second half to score four goals to win the friendly match played at the Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

The match was played to prepare both teams towards the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

The Tunisians after going into recess with a comfortable two goal lead didn’t know what hit them in the second half as the Ghanaians came out fighting to win the match in the end.

And coach Trabelsi says his players lacked concentration and played ‘dangerous’ football against Ghana in the second half.

“We played the first half and won 2-0 and played more better than Ghana,” he told Angel FM

“In the second half Ghana played more better because we lost a lot of the balls in midfield and I think we lacked concentration.

“I think my team in the second half played dangerous football. They played most of the ball in our part of the pitch.”

It was the second time in an 11-month period that Trabelsi has tasted defeat at the hands of Ghana as a coach.

His first encounter was in the 2-1 loss to the Black Stars in the quarter final game at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

Ghana coach aware of underdogs threat

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has played down talk that the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations will be a straight battle between the continent's established sides.

Sixteen nations will challenge for the Cup won last year by Zambia when hosts South Africa open the campaign this weekend.

Certain teams are entering the competition without the prestige, experience or star names that other sides will be parading but they remain committed to going the full mile and upsetting the odds.

For the Black Stars coach, his Ghana team cannot discount the dangers posed by nations considered as underdogs.

"I have always said any team that has qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations is a very good team," Appiah said as he prepares to arrive in South Africa with his team from Abu Dhabi where they've been camping for over a week now.

"So there is no way you can underrate anyone. In modern football, there is nothing good or bad."

Appiah says every team will arrive at the competition with full confidence but insists that Ghana will have to be at their best to withstand any team.

"The most important thing is you prepare yourself very well for any game you play," he added.

The Black Stars open their Nations Cup campaign against DR Congo on Sunday, January 20 in a group that also includes Mali and Niger.
