Niger Will Be The Most Difficult Match For Us- Kwesi Appiah
Posted On Saturday, 26th January 2013
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah claims Niger will be the real test for his team at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Black Stars, who top Group B with four points, are highly tipped to beat the Mena in their final match on Monday at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
Niger lost to Mali in their opening match but put up a brave fight to draw 0-0 with DR Congo in their second Group match.
Appiah feels his opposite number Gernot Rohr has built a strong squad capable of causing havoc.
“We have played two games and for me, our next game is the most difficult one,” Appiah said at Saturday’s pre-match conference.
“Looking at the Niger team, they are tactically very disciplined and I see it as a game that will be very difficult for us and for that reason we need to prepare very well for that game.”
Ghana will be without the services of midfielder Mubarak Wakaso who is serving a one-match ban due to card suspension.
