Ghana coach to deploy two strikers to face Sudan in World Cup qualifier
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is likely to play two strikers when the Black Stars take on Sudan in the 2014 World Cup qualifier on Sunday.
Captain Asamoah Gyan is likely to get assistance from young striker Abdul Majeed Waris in the game at the Baba Yara Stadium.
This is a complete departure from the one striker deloyed by coach Appiah since taking over the mantle as the head coach of the team.
This means Ghana will use 4-4-2 formation instead of the 4-5-1 system which was so mastered under Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac.
The formation has been rehearsed by the Black Stars since they started training in Kumasi and it looks like it will be deployed on Sunday.
This comes after several calls that Gyan being used as the sole striker without speedy wingers has proved counter-productive for the team.
Gyan is a striker known by defenders all over Africa which has led to him being marked by defenders during matches.
Speedy Waris, who was the top scorer in the Swedish top-flight last season, will come in handy to give some assistance to Gyan.
Waris has shown some good signs since he started his combination with Gyan, who has also been willing to chip in some advice to the youngster.
It also shows that Ghana coach Appiah is keen on a goal harvest on Sunday.
