Black Stars B to host Burkina Faso on Sunday

By Edward Gyasi, GNA

Accra, Aug. 18,
GNA – The local Black Stars would lock horns with Burkina Faso local national
team at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, on Sunday, for the second leg of the
African Championship (CHAN) 2018 qualifier.

The winner of the
match would determine who makes it to the fifth edition of the competition in
Kenya next year.

The Stars held
the Burkinabes to a pulsating 2-2 draw in the first leg of the fixture at the
August 4 Sports Stadium in Ouagadougou a week ago, giving them a slight
advantage over their West African opponents.

But they must
guard against complacency, as that could be the reason, should they

fail to progress
to the competition next year January.

Coach Maxwell
Konadu would once again rely on the services of nimble footed Winful

Cobbinah,
speedster Patrick Razak and back from injury Saddick Adams to secure the much

needed
qualification.

However they have
to work hard to ward off any challenge from the Burkinabes who seem to pose a
serious threat to them.

It is for this
reason coach Konadu decided to augment the defence with the call up of

Vincent Atingah
and Ahmed Adams.

And this is
expected to be an antidote to the dreaded attacking force of Sylla Mohammed

and Iliase
Sawadogo who were on the scoring sheet in the first leg for Burkina Faso.

An observation at
the teams training ground shows that Ghana is likely to rely on the

following for the
game; Joseph Addo (GK) Amos Frimpong, Daniel Darkwa, Musa Nuhu, Ahmed Adams,
Gideon Wadja, Patrick Razak, Sadiq Adams, Winful Cobbinah, Zakaria Mumuni and
Isaac Twum.
