Black Stars To Play Deportivo In Friendly On Friday Ahead Of Egypt Clash
Posted On Monday, 7th October 2013
The Black Stars will play lower division side Asokwa Deportivo in a friendly on Friday ahead of the 2014 World Cup play-offs against Egypt.
The team will start preparations for the game on Tuesday in Accra with coach Kwesi Appiah expected to have the majority of his players in full session.
Coach Appiah will use the friendly against the Kumasi-based second-tier side to sharpen his arsenals before they battle the North African giants.
The injury-ravaged Black Stars team must grind out a good result against the Pharaohs in the first leg tie to make the return fixture paperwork.
Defensive quartet Isaac Vorsah, Jonathan Mensah, John Boye and Harrison Afful have all been ruled out of the tie for varied reasons.
