Black Stars win will soar our moral – Deputy Coach

Black Stars Deputy Coach, Akwasi Appiah says only a win over Congo in an African Cup of Nations qualifier in Brazzaville later this month will soar the team’s moral.

Ghana dropped two vital points in the last qualifier against Sudan in Kumasi in a game that had the former skipper in charge and the soft spoken coach told GNA Sports winning in Congo will make amends for the “Oseikrom” slip.

He said the technical team is preoccupied with psyching up the players to win the Brazzaville meeting to keep a hold on the campaign for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations to be co-hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

“Our ambition is to win in Congo because only that will make us comfortable.”

The Black Stars are billed to face England in an international friendly two days after the Brazzaville duel on March 27, a task the Deputy Coach brands tedious.

He said “it is a big game without doubt and it will be tedious because of the limited time but if you look at the football calendar across the globe, teams are playing in-between three days and these players are used to it.

“We understand the importance of the friendly; it is a memorial game. We are Commonwealth country and have been waiting for this opportunity; we must raise the flag of Ghana.

“But most importantly, it is the qualifier in Congo we must win because that is a competitive game.”
