Egypt qualified to the World Cup for the first time since 1990 after finishing on top of group E with 13 points while Ghana finished in third place with seven points.

“It’s unfortunate we did not qualify for the World Cup. Every Ghanaian is disappointed we did not qualify,” the coach told Happy FM. “If we come together and access where the fault is, automatically we will be heading forward.”

Appiah pointed out that the Egyptians had a well-executed plan for their qualifying campaign that included a lot of money from investors.

“Egypt for instance, had a plan, they had some many investors putting in some money that they had purposely to qualify for the World Cup,” he explained.
