The Black Stars of Ghana will today play guest to Mozambique in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nation’s qualifier in Maputo.
The first leg played last Thursday in Accra ended 3-1 in favour of the Black Stars despite missing the services of captain Asamoah Gyan and vice André Ayew because of injury.
During the course of the game, John Boye, Frank Acheampong and Mubarak Wakaso picked up injuries and are all a doubt for today’s game.
Coach of Mozambique, Abel Xavier and his men will be hoping to rely on their impressive second half display in the first leg and also capitalize on Stars’ injured players but Avram Grant has other ideas. “I don’t like to take injured players into football games, I take only players who can play,”
He said “We always want to win. Mozambique is a good team and we saw it in the first game. But i can assure you of victory even without out key players”
He added Ghana have enjoyed an impressive qualifier, amassing all nine points of three games played and a win on Sunday will but confirm progression to Gabon. The match will be played at Estádio do Zimpeto in Maputo.
