Kwesi Appiah, the Ghana Black Star coach said, as a coach, I have experienced many great moments in my life, but beating Egypt in the 2014 World Cup playoffs first leg 6-1 was the best moment of my life.
Black Stars take on seven times African Cup of Nations champions in a must win first leg in Kumasi; with Egypt remain unbeaten throughout the qualifiers until they meet Ghana.
Goals from Captain Asamoah Gyan, Abdul Majeed Waris, Sulley Muntari, Christian Atsu and an own goal by Wael Gomaa make a memorable day for the Black Stars.
The seven times African champions only manage to score a consolation goal off a spot kick well converted by the celebrated Mohammed Aboutreka.
In the return leg, Egypt plays better, beat Black Stars 2-1 but could not make it to the FIFA World Cup 2014 as Ghana Black Stars proceed with a commanding 7-3 aggregate score line.
Ghanaian coach, Kwesi Appiah ranked the memorable win in Kumasi as his best ever game as coach of the Black Stars.
I was very happy as Black Stars didn’t disappoint me and the fans as everything went according to the plan on that day.
Appiah became the first Local coach that led Black Stars to World Cup with a massive aggregate win over the pharaohs.
Now he is facing a very big challenge as Ghana is drawn into the toughest group with some experts calling it group of death alongside Germany, Portugal and USA at the finals in Brazil.
