Kwesi Appiah celebrates debut win with Sudan

Ghanaian coach James Kwesi Appiah celebrated his inaugural victory as the head coach of Sudan when they clinched a narrow win against Chad in an international friendly on Tuesday.

Sudan had been facing difficulties in recent matches, with a disappointing four-game winless streak, but they managed to secure a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Chad at the King Fahd Stadium in Saudi Arabia.

The pivotal goal that secured the victory came in the 30th minute, marking a significant triumph for Appiah’s team following his debut match, which had ended in a 1-1 draw against Tanzania.

Earlier this month, the former Black Stars coach was appointed as Sudan’s head coach, committing to a three-year contract with the primary aim of rejuvenating football in the Northeast African nation.

He has a support team of fellow Ghanaians, including Ignatius Osei Fosu, the former coach of Techiman Eleven Wonders and Dreams FC, as well as former Black Stars goalkeeper Fatau Dauda, who is serving as the goalkeeper’s trainer.

Sudan has set its sights on qualification for the 2026 World Cup, with crucial qualifiers against Togo and DR Congo slated for next month.

Unfortunately, they missed out on qualification for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, which is scheduled to kick off in January 2024 in Ivory Coast.
