Black Stars Prepare to Take on Congo in 2018 World Cup Qualifier


Ghana Black Stars needs back-to-back wins against the Congolese while hoping for the Egyptians to falter against Uganda in order to have chance at qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.

Ghana has 1 point from their first two matches while Egypt has 6 points.

Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah says there will be no room for error in this upcoming match.

“You can never say it is a lost dream, because at the end of the day there are still a lot games to play before we get there, but It is a very tough hurdle,” Mensah told KweseESPN.

“Normally after two games we have four points, but now reality has hit us and we must deal with it.

“We basically need to win both games against Congo,” he added. “If we don’t win those two games it is over for us. We simply have to win them, because that will set us up really well for the Egypt game at home later.”

After training practice on Tuesday at the Baba Yara Stadium, captain of the team, Asamoah Gyan, said that the players used the time to get into the right physche for the match on Friday.

“We took things step by step because a lot of the players arrived today (Tuesday). We used the session to get a feel of the ball and to have a bit of fun.

On Wednesday, I believe we will do something different.

We need to focus on the match and get a good result against our opponents.”
