Black Stars forward Asamoah Gyan believes they escaped defeat in their draw with Benin in the group opener of the tournament.

The four-time champions were held to a 2-2 draw by the Squirrels of Benin at the Ismailia Stadium on Tuesday evening — Ghana's defender John Boye received a red card on the 55th minute after he was caught delaying.
Asamoah Gyan, 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.
