Local Stars friendly with Togo important – Konadu


Ghana’s Local Black Stars Coach Maxwell Konadu has described his side’s friendly encounter with neighboring Togo as “very significant”.

The Local Hawks will host the Ghanaians at the Stade de Kage in Lome as both West African nations prepare ahead of the CHAN qualifiers next month.

“It’s good because in the first place we are playing away from home. All our friendly matches have been played on home soil so we need the challenge outside our comfort zone,” Konadu noted.

“It’s important to emphasise that we will be playing the first leg of the CHAN qualifier with Burkina Faso away. So we need a similar atmosphere to strengthen ourselves.

“The Togo game will present us with a similar situation against Burkina and we need it for the team. How they will react to defeat and officiating is very key ahead of the Burkina Faso game,” he told Starr Sports.

The Local Black Stars have won six matches out of eight friendlies and drawn two, scoring 24-goals and conceding six.
