Ghana to play Sudan in World Cup qualifier in Kumasi

Published on: 5 years ago

Ghana's 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Sudan next month will be played in Kumasi, understands.

The Baba Yara Stadium has been the home of the Black Stars for its international matches and the Ghana Football Association wants to stick to that tradition.

The last time Ghana played Sudan in Kumasi was in 2011 during a 2012 Nations Cup qualifier which ended 0-0.

Now head coach Kwesi Appiah was on the touch lines in a stop-gap capacity.

In June last year, Kwesi Appiah led a team which thrashed Lesotho 7-0 at the same venue in their opening Group D qualifier.

Ghana need a win to revive their campaign after falling three points behind leaders Zambia-who won a protest filed against Sudan for fielding an unqualified player.

Victory will also placate fans after a disappointing 2013 Nations Cup campaign.

    We need to play 4-4-2 and stop that lone striker thing which is not helping ageing Gyan.A midfield combination of any of the following: Essien,Atsu,Dede,Badu,K Asamoah,Emmanuel Frimpong,Annan,Afriyie Acquah,Sulley and Wakaso should be enough to see us in Brazil.We have the men!

    We are fed up with Blackstars. We need more fun than one of the most inept Ghanaian national teams in a long time

    They dont want these boys to compete with the Born and Bred in Ghana boys. That is why we are not moving forward. We know how ghanaian born abroad helped make Ghana strong but because their agents have no connections with GFA they will not make any money if they get a bigger European team.
