We still have something to fight for, says Ghana coach Appiah

Afful Mensah join Ghana injury list ahead of Uganda qualifier

The 56-year-old explained his reasons for dropping a handful of stars from Ghana's squad for the Uganda clash.

The Black Stars Coach has insisted on the confidence of his charges around to deliver on Saturday in Kampala.

"Everyone knows the hard situation we find ourselves in the campaign", Appiah was quoted as saying by Ghanasoccernet on Tuesday.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup African Confederation qualifying group enters it's final phase as Uganda face The Black Stars of Ghana in Kampala on Saturday October 7th with a 1500 CEST kick-off.

"We want to go into the game prepared well because it is very vital for both of us at this stage".

"We tried to increase the number of players in camp should any one sustain any injury so that other players can fit in".

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has admitted that it will not be easy playing Uganda in Kampala. The team lies third in the group with five points and are four clear points of the pace of leaders Egypt with two matches to end the group.

Egypt will officially qualify if they beat Congo in Alexandria and Uganda stumble against Ghana in the same round.

Appiah's side is now depleted after losing Captain Asamoah Gyan, Thomas Agyepong and Columbus Crew duo Harrison Afful, Jonathan Mensah and Christian Atsu.

The former Uganda Cranes skipper was named as part of the interim technical staff for the national team since Mulitin "Micho" Sredojevic left and was available for the back to back games against Egypt.
