AFCON 2019 Q: Ghana to jet off to Kenya from Ethiopia today

The Black Stars of Ghana will fly out to Addis Ababa today ahead of Sunday’s 2019 AFCON qualifier against Walias of Ethiopia.

Ghana are currently sitting on 3rd position in Group F of qualifying after losing to Kenya in September, while their games against Sierra Leone was cancelled.

Kwesi Appiah and his 19-man squad are expected to leave Kenya later today in order to arrive in Ethiopia on time for Sunday’s game.

The FIFA Normalization Committee yesterday denied claims in some sections of the media that the team had been stranded in Kenya.

Widespread reports earlier this week suggested that the players and the technical team had been left to fend for themselves after being stranded at their training base in Naivasha.

A win for Ghana will send them 2nd above Ethiopia who they beat 5-0 in the opening round of qualifying back in June last year.
