Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has called on Ghanaians to remember the team in prayers as they prepare to engage Kenya in the 2019 AFCON qualifier on Sunday.
The West African giants will be hoping to extend their lead at the summit of the standings when they meet the Harambee of Kenya on matchday two of the 2019 AFCON qualifiers.
Ghana recorded a 5-0 win over Ethiopia in the opening game of the qualifiers at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium last year, but a trip to Nairobi looks much more daunting and coach is calling on Ghanaians to get behind the team on Sunday.
“I will say Ghanaians should pray and support us, put all their support behind us. We are going out there to give all our best so that our country will be proud of us. It’s not going to be easy, because Kenya have got all the support and everything behind them but we are going there to make Ghana proud.”
Appiah was asked about the reason behind the team’s decision to pitch camp in Ethiopia rather than heading direct to Kenya to begin their acclimatization.
He said, “We came to Ethiopia purposely to acclimatize and so far so good almost all the players are here and we are going through our programs perfectly.”
“The altitude in Kenya is very high and that is the reason why we came to Ethiopia because the altitude here is higher than that in Kenya.” the Black Stars gaffer added.
