Ghana captain Isaac Twum was named Man of the Match in their 1-0 win over Gambia in the 2017 WAFU Nations Cup opener on Saturday in Cape Coast.

The Inter Allies player bossed the midfield and dictated the pace with his sublime skills and artistry.

Twum was influential for the Black Stars B who snatched victory in injury time.

Defender Vincent Atingah converted an injury time penalty after the ball struck the hand of a Gambian defender inside the box.

Meanwhile, the Man of the Match award winner said they are ready for what is next to come as they progress into the group stages of the competition.

“I have to congratulate my teammates, without them this victory couldn’t have happened. They gave their best and we won,” the Inter Allies midfielder said.

“The Gambians also had a good game and they were just unfortunate to lose.

“I think WAFU is going to be a good tournament, especially with the support we had at the stadium.

“I encourage all our supporters to come in their numbers to our next games. It is a good platform for us as players to showcase our talent.

“We are working hard and prepared for what is next.” – Ghanasoccernet
