JE Sarpong wants Black Stars to play CHAN team in pre-World Cup friendly
By Rahman Osman
Experienced Ghanaian coach JE Sarpong wants the senior national team to play the CHAN team as part of their World Cup preparations.
The home-based national team were runners-up at the just ended 2014 African Nations Championship hosted by South Africa.
There are calls for some members of the Local Black Stars to make Ghana’s squad to Brazil and Sarpong pitting the two sides will settle the debate.
“Yes a game between the two sides won’t be a bad idea, it will create healthy competition and save the FA money even,” the former Liberty coach told GHANASoccernet.com.
“For me some of them have made a good claim for themselves and will definitely stand a good chance now than before.”
Ghana have lined up to play Montenegro on 5 March and another against the Netherlands on 31 May in pre-World Cup matches.
