Black Stars head coach Kwesi Appiah feels the Black Stars missed several chances against Kenya which if converted would have given his side a victory.

Ghana were stunned in Nairobi as the Hamrabee Stars narrowly won 1-0 in a 2019 AFCON qualifier.

Ghana after winning their first qualifier 5-0 against Ethiopia were expected to beat Kenya but were shocked as Nicholas Opoku own goal gave Kenya all three points.

The Black Stars created as many as 13 goal scoring chances but failed to get a goal, something Kwesi Appiah is struggling to come to terms with it.

"We had a lot of chances but it’s just unfortunate we couldn’t utilize any," Appiah said. "I believe Kenya did well but we could have done better with the chances we had. We should have at least converted them."
