Published on: 15 June 2019

The Black Stars have another shot to restore belief and confidence in Ghanaians when they take on the Bayana Bayana of South Africa in their final warm-up match on Saturday ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Ghana lost to Namibia on Sunday by a lone goal in their first preparatory game which raised a lot of concerns about the performance of the team heading into the tournament.

Head coach Kwesi Appiah used the game to assess the players invited and named his final 23-man squad after the game.

Yaw Yeboah, Abdul Fatawu, Majeed Waris, Ebenezer Ofori and Mohammed Alhassan were the players excluded from the squad.

Now with Kwasi Appiah settled on his final squad for the tournament, he will use this game to assess his first team, tactics and player selection ahead of the tournament.

South Africa will prove tough customers for the Black Stars in this preparatory game.

The Bayana Bayana have qualified for the AFCON and will be hoping to beat the Black Stars to boost their confidence ahead of the tournament.

South Africa is in Group D alongside Ivory Coast, Namibia and Morocco.

Kickoff is exactly 1:30 pm.
