Ghana wary of Uganda threat ahead of World Cup qualifier

Ghana wary of Uganda threat ahead of World Cup qualifier

A win in Kampala is vital for the Black Stars - now placed third in the group with five points from four matches - before their final qualifier against current leaders Egypt, at home in Accra on November 6.

"It [the group] is still open". Defender John Boye and Afriyie Acquah will also not play a part in this game due to injury. "Ghana won't make it easy for them", Onyango told Kickoff. "We are hoping those in camp will give up their best to get victory for the nation", he added.

Christian Atsu has pulled out of the Ghana squad for upcoming World Cup qualifier against Uganda because of a calf problem.

"We are still monitoring and that is why it is a national team, you don't always depend on few players. However, it looks like injury situation is increasing day in and day out and it is a little frustrating but we are trying to manage with what we have now", Appiah told the press in Nairobi.

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

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has admitted that it will not be easy playing Uganda in Kampala.

"We do not care who is coming, and who is not coming to play against us on Saturday. I know they will do well".

Meanwhile, Coach Kwasi Appiah and his players have intensified their preparation for Saturday's clash at their training basse in the Kenbyan capital, Nairobi.

Most of the experienced players in the team will miss the action, including skipper Asamoah Gyan and deputy captain Harrison Afful.
