2012 Afcon: Ghana aims clean sheet against Guinea

Ghana’s Black Stars will aim at keeping a clean sheet when they face the Sylii Nationale of Guinea in their last Group D duel billed for the Franceville Stadium on Wednesday.

The Stars sit top of the group on six points and require at least a draw to authenticate their position on the log going into the quarter finals after victories over Botswana and Mali.

Unlike Ghana, the Sylli Nationales would be needing all three points to move to six if they are to gain any realistic chance of making it out of the group, knowing Mali who face weaker foes, Botswana share the same points going into tomorrow’s clashes.

The Black Stars have scored thrice and conceded none in two outings, and would obviously relish keeping that slate clean despite the frailties goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has shown in post so far.

The battle lines are drawn with both teams keeping a measure of respect for each other. With the Guineans swearing to approach the game as the battle of their lives and Ghana insisting they will be granting no favours, the pitch is set for an envisaged thriller.
