AFCON: Preview Of Black Stars Of Ghana Team And That Of Gabon’s Ahead Of Today’s Clash

Host nation – Cameroon are through to the roof after beating the Walias of Ethiopia by four goals to one at the Olembe Stadium. The Stallions have now won two games and are in a very comfortable position to qualify for the next round. Burkina Faso, on the other hand, did justice to the Blue Sharks of Cape Verde as they won by a goal to nil and are on the second spot of Group-A table with the same point as Cape Verde.

And today (14/1/22) four fixtures are scheduled to take place – thus Senegal – Guinea, Malawi – Zimbabwe, Morocco – Comoros, and Gabon – Ghana.

However, one of the fixtures most football fans are looking forward to is Gabon – Ghana, given the fact that Ghana has a slim chance of qualifying after their defeat to Morocco, and Gabon is in a solid position to make it to the next round of the competition with a win or draw. And in this article, we are going to make a preview of how each team will line up against each other in today’s clash.
