Mubarak Wakaso has been training with home-based players in Accra ahead of the two crucial ties.

“Everything is going on well, the guys are well prepared and ready to give out their best. Wakaso told

“What I’m seeing here is massive, everybody is doing great. They were in camp before I came and I think what I saw was different. They were training hard and it motivated me as a professional player to play with the local players.

“They are playing in the Ghana Premier League and they are doing well in their teams that was why they were selected. They just need to be confident without any fear and from what I’ve seen, they are very confident and well-motivated.

“We can also help them with our experience. Without the fans, we are nothing so we need their support and prayers. We thank them for standing by us always”. Wakaso added

The Black Stars are tied on 9 points with South Africa at the top of the standings in Group C after four matches with two games left.

Due, to the AFCON qualifiers, the start of the second round of the Ghana Premier League has been rescheduled from Friday, March 19, 2021 to Friday, April 2, 2021, the GFA has announced.
