    Franceville, Jan. 29, GNA – Ghana ‘s deputy Coach, Akwasi Appiah says the Black Stars will not play their last game against Guinea with the intention of avoiding any opponent.
A point from the last Group game at the Franceville Stadium on Sunday could mean staying on top of the group and meeting the second team in Group C.
He told GNA Sports in Franceville that “we have no plans of playing to avoid any team. We have enough quality and ready for any opposition so in every game, we go all the way and the one against Guinea will not be any exception”.
” We are ready for all team’s and all we want to do is to keep winning every game.

“Coach Appiah said the team’s preoccupation is to keep improving and winning”.
Touching on the technical team’s decision to introduce Charles Takyi into the Stars 2-0 win over Mali, he said ‘i know it didn’t look like a popular decision for a lot of spectators. But he was sent in there on a tactical reason and he performed his task as expected. We have different assignments for different team’s all the time and that is always for the ultimate benefit of the team”.
He said all the 23 players who made the squad are at the tournament because they are good enough and the technical team will keep assigning technical roles to various players in their quest to march on.
Ghana will be chasing a fifth Nations  Cup trophy in three decades. The STars sit on top of Group D and depending on the outcome of the next round of matches, could face co-host Gabon who lead Group C on six points after impressive outings.
