Gideon Mensah admits Black Meteors have to improve in the second leg against Algeria

Ghana U23 defender Gideon Mensah has admitted they need to do better in the second leg following a disappointing 1-1 home draw with Algeria on Friday.

Adem Zorgane scored first for the visitors in the first-half but Dauda Mohammed’s penalty after recess spared the Black Meteors’ blushes in the first leg fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium.

“As a player I’m always going to be disappointed when we don’t win and also when we don’t put in a good performance but then again we have to also accept that it’s a game” he told

“Of course we want to give Ghanaians what they expect from us which is a win but the Algerians also came here to get something, it wasn’t going to be an easy game from the beginning. Now we have to sit back and look at went wrong so we improve our game in the return leg”

The winner of the two legged game will qualify for the CAF U-23 championship in Egypt, which will serve as qualification for Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
