Black Stars manager Kwesi Appiah has expressed satisfaction with Ghana's performance during friendly games against Egypt and Tunisia.

Ghana, who are preparing for the upcoming Nations Cup, thrashed Egypt 3-0 on Thursday, before stunning Tunisia with a 4-2 win three days later.

"My ambition was to allow every player to take part in these two games that we played," Appiah was quoted as saying by Ghana Soccer Net website.

"When you're building a team, you don’t concentrate on very few players. You are going with 23 players and it is important that each and every player takes part in these trial games."

"Looking at the Egypt and Tunisia games, tactically I’m looking at how we attack, how we defend and at the same time, how we construct our set pieces," he added.

Ghana will start their Nations Cup campaign on Sunday when they face DR Congo in the Group B opener.
