Razak Brimah – 7
Wasn’t troubled too much and was stable in every intervention.
Daniel Amartey – 7
Solid defence work and was able to start plays effectively.
Jonathan Mensah – 7
Wasn’t very bothered.
Harrison Afful – 5
Too many wayward crosses and rash decisions.
Baba Rahman – 6
Strong and steady, but not impressive.
Afriyie Acquah – 3
Would’ve been sent off if he had stayed on the pitch. Way too aggressive.
Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu – 6
Had some quality touches and moves, but nothing extraordinary.
Andre Ayew – 6
Lots of heart and initiative, but was bogged down by the constant fouls he suffered.
Jordan Ayew – 5
Too selfish, wasted good chances.
Christian Atsu – 6
Should’ve done better, didn’t do much of note.
Asamoah Gyan – 6
Shouldn’t have played from the start, he was tired and wasted interesting chances. That said, did very well in the play which resulted in the goal.
Mubarak Wakaso – 7
Lively since he came on and managed a great assist for the goal.
Rais M’Bohli – 7
Suffered a goal, but apart from that he was solid.
Aissa Mandi – 8
Defensively, he wasn’t all that special, but managed a couple of passes which tore Ghana’s defence apart.
Madjid Bougherra – 7
There’s a reason as to why he’s Algeria’s captain. Very secure player.
Carl Medjani – 6
Again, good touches, but should have done better in Ghana’s goal.
Faouzi Ghoulam – 6
Had a set of good touches, but wasn’t paying attention when Gyan scored.
Mehdi Lacen – 6
Was okay, didn’t do much of note.
Saphir Taider – 6
Not at his best, needed to do more.
Nabil Bentaleb – 7
Added some spark to the Algerian attack and created chances.
Sofiane Feghouli – 6
Needed to do more in a game like this.
Yacine Brahimi – 5
Disappointing once again. He needs to step up his game.
Ishak Belfodil – 5
Didn’t do much, rightly replaced.
Islam Slimani – 6
Did well, but didn’t have any chances to show what he’s got.
