Guinea forward Ibrahim Traore says his side gave too much respect to Ghana leading to the 1-1 draw in Saturday’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Casablanca.
The 26-year-old who was the captain of the night hit a superb strike to pull his side level after Asamoah Gyan had put the Black Stars in front in the first half.
Troare cut in expertly and struck an angle shot which left goalkeeper Stephen Adams with absolutely no chance to win his side a vital point that keeps them much in the hunt for a place in next year’s finals.
Guinea deserved the equalizer having thoroughly dominated the second half.
The Syli National however struggled to impose themselves in the first period of the game.
Traore who believes his team deserved a win explains his side’s poor first half showing was as a result of giving too much respect to the relative star-studded Ghanaian team.
“We deserved to win today. In the first half we had too much respect for them,” the Monchengladbach star said after the game.
“And back were very high on the lawn. They had two chances and they scored.
“Tonight we deserved the three points of victory, that’s for sure.”
