Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac is confident the Black Stars return to winning despite losing to Morocco in their Group C opener on Monday.

The West African country were pipped by a lone goal at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo in Yaounde.

Sofiane Boufal netted late to win all three points for the Atlas Lions.

"It was a difficult game for us, on the pitch were two great teams of African football. Morocco scored on the first opportunity it had,” Rajevac told pressmen after the game, as per Cafonline.

“I take this opportunity to congratulate Morocco and my players on the commitment shown on the pitch. We still have two games to go and we will stay focused on them.

“It is true that we have created more scoring opportunities, but we have not been able to materialise that opportunity. We are unhappy in that respect.

“We hope to score goals and win the next two games. I will calmly analyse the goal shot conceded and see where the team lost control of the game. Right now, we will keep our focus on the match."

The big moment came in the 82nd minute when Boufal pounced on a loose ball inside the box to fire first-time past goalkeeper Joseph Wollacott.

Ghana have four days to prepare for their next game, a clash with Gabon, before wrapping up their group stage campaign again Comoros.
