AFCON 2017: Our Best Wasn’t Enough – Agyemang Badu

Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu

Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has admitted that their performance wasn’t enough to take them to the final of the ongoing African Cup of Nations.

Prior to the competition, the Black Stars target was to put an end to their 35-year AFCON title drought but that failed to happened.

Last Thursday, Ghana’s dream got shattered after failing to make it to the final following their semi-final loss (2-0) to Cameroon.

“We came here [Gabon) with an aim that is to make the nation proud, we fought so hard but I think our fight wasn’t enough to lift the cup,” Badu intimated.

Ahead of Ghana’s third place clash with Burkina Faso which comes off on Saturday, the Udinese midfielder added:

“The team is really disappointed but is part of life. This is the time we have to be strong, we have to come together and make sure we play the game on Saturday and to see what happen.

“We don’t have to let this affect us too much, it is very painful but we have to just take it like that and we have to move to see what will come after the tournament. But with the quality in camp I think this generation has bright future.”
