“I'm very sure that Ghana would've done better than some of the African countries. That's the truth, however, I believe a country like Egypt deserved the qualification to the World Cup also," Badu told Ghanaweb TV.
"This is because they defeated Ghana at home and drew away in the reverse fixture and that means that the team was in great shape.
"Unfortunately, they couldn't get the same form at the world stage. Ghana made some mistakes during the qualifiers and they took advantage of it to qualify," he added.
When asked about the experience of playing at the World Cup, Badu admitted that the competition represents one of the greatest things any footballer would dream of in his career.
"Playing in the World Cup is a plus for any player, his family and career," he said.
"Therefore, watching them on television this year is always difficult but we can't do anything about it now so we just have to stay focused and come back stronger next time," he added.
