Ghana played admirably as the tournament’s lowest-ranked squad, according to Black Stars assistant coach George Boateng.
Despite being eliminated at the group round, Boateng believes the Black Stars played well in every game.
Ghana exited the group stage with a win over South Korea sandwiched between defeats to Portugal and Uruguay, finishing bottom of Group H.
“If you look at it, we performed well as a team, well enough in every game. If you look at the game against Portugal, the team was compact and very solid. Everybody gave his all and we all know if the penalty wasn’t given, things could have been different,” he said.
“The game against South Korea was outstanding. The players showed so much character in that game, leading two nil and conceding two goals to then find the courage and still come back to win the game gave us such good confidence.
“If you look at it overall, we were the lowest-ranked team going to the World Cup, but we did better than Denmark, Serbia, Iran, Coast Rica Saudi Arabia, and Qatar the host. So if you look at it, we performed well enough.”
