Mali coach Mohamed Saloum believes his tactics worked to perfection in the 2-1 win over hosts Ghana at the Africa Women Cup of Nations.
A double from home-based striker Bassira Toure ensured Les Aiglonnes revived their qualification bid after losing their opener 2-1 to Cameroon.
Mali now need a point from their last match against Algeria to progress to the semi-final.
Saloum revealed they had a game plan to neutralize Bashir Hayford’s side.
”We watched Ghana’s previous game and noted a lot of their mistakes,” he said. ”And we prepared to capitalize on their mistakes and that is exactly we did to win the game.”
