Published on: 10 September 2017

Black Stars B Coach Maxwell Konadu says he is happy with the opening day victory in the West Africa Football Union Championship which began on Saturday.

Ghana beat the Gambia in a highly intense game at the Cape Coast Stadium, after Heart of Oak defender Vincent Atinga slotted in a last minute penalty which saw the team progress to the next stage.

The Black Stars B team has come under a lot of criticism following their disqualification from the Championship of African Nations competition to be hosted next year in Kenya.

Coach Maxwell Konadu who wants to make amends after the disappointment of CHAN says Ghana has always had a slow start to Championships but was excited with the win against Gambia.

"We are always slow starters in tournaments but today I'm happy with our start especially in the first half. It wasn't easy but the players continued to push for the winner, and we got it in the last minute," Konadu said at the post-match presser.

"It's not easy to start a tournament in front of your support, so I must congratulate the players for a wonderful job done. It was very difficult but we manage to sail through."

The Black Stars B will now be waiting the winner of the game between Mali and Mauritania.
