Black Stars general captain, Asamoah Gyan believes they escaped defeat in their draw with Benin in the group opener of the tournament on Tuesday night.

Ghana were held to a 2-2 draw by The Squirrels of Benin at the Ismailia Stadium.

The Kayserispor forward who is the all-time top-scorer of the team, says Black Stars escaped from a defeat, insisting they could have lost the match after John Boye's red card in the early minute of the second-half.

"The point is very important. We escaped a defeat because we were one man down," Asamoah Gyan told reporters.

"We've to go back to the drawing board and see where we had a mistake so we can come back against Cameroon," he ended.

Ghana will meet the defending champions, Cameroon, on Saturday, June 29 at exactly 17:00 GMT.
