"We know Egpyt very well" - Konadu


Assistant coach of the Black Stars, Maxwell Konadu, has said that Ghana has done it's scouting on their World Cup play-off opponents and is very confident of victory.

He was speaking to the media on Tuesday, after the Black Stars' second training session at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Ghana had a full house, save injured Kevin-Prince Boateng, with 24 players in camp. Konadu commended the players for turning up early.

"From day one, coach [Appiah] has made it clear, and the players also understand the situation we find ourselves in. So anybody who is called up makes sure that they get here on time so that team preparation will go on well.

"Normally when you have all your arsenals together to prepare them for a great battle, once they are fit and playing for their clubs, we have to thank God that we have everybody."

Konadu also said that Ghana had studied the Egyptian side under Bob Bradley, who has suffered two defeats at the hands of Ghana with the USA, and that Ghana was going to beat Bradley again.

"We know them very well. We have seen the team on tape and we've had private discussions with so many people. We know the team better than before.

"I dont think what we know about them will change. We don't expect them to change anything about them come Tuesday. We will prepare ourselves very well and put all the necessary strategies in place to outwit them.

"Ghana has beaten him [Bradley] before. We don't expect anything different in Kumasi. We will make sure that we win this game again to prove to him that Ghana is always prepared to win against him."

Ghana will play the game on Tuesday, 15 October, 2013 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi. Kick-off is at 1600 local time.
