AFCON 2019 Qualifiers: I Will Field A Strong Team Against Kenya – Coach Kwesi Appiah

Head coach of the senior national team the Black Stars of Ghana, James Akwasi Appiah has pledged to field a strong side to face Kenya on Saturday.

The four-time African champions will lock horns with the Harambee Stars in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Kasarani Stadium.

Despite being considered as the favourites for the game Ghana coach played down their prowess insisting the Kenyans can spring a surprise if underrated.

‘Kenya is a good team, we can never underrate them,” the former Ghana international defender Kwesi Appiah said on arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta Airport.

“I know it’s not going to be easy because they play in front of home supporters, but I will put out a team that will give a good show.’

Buoyed by the 5-0 thrashing over Ethiopia in the group’s opening game last September, Ghana are considered outright favourites to qualify as table toppers from this pool.

Ghana top the group with three points level with second-placed Sierra Leone, who play bottom-placed Ethiopia in Addis on Sunday.
