Speaking after the training session, Coach Kwasi Appiah revealed that the decent performance of the players will make it difficult for him to name a squad for Saturday’s final AFCON qualifier game.
“Since they came, everyone is comporting himself and if you look at the training sessions at a point in time I wanted to close because everyone is proving what he can play and in actual fact it makes the work difficult for me but it’s good for the nation,” the coach said
He added that the team “will be training today (Wednesday) around 6pm so that we have a feel of the light and then we train on Thursday afternoon and on Friday morning.”
