Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association, Ibrahim Sannie Daara, has said that Ghana is well aware of the threat that Egypt poses.
He was speaking to the media on Tuesday, after the Black Stars' second training session at the Accra Sports Stadium.
His Excellency John Dramani Mahama on Tuesday morning paid a courtesy call on the senior national team at their training grounds and Sannie believes this is an indication of the support the team has.
"They are a very formidable side so we need to take them very, very serious. The President of the country is here, it shows how serious the country is towards this game.
"Ghana is very prepared. We've just had to training sessions. Hopefully, by Friday things would have picked up and reached its peak by Saturday, Sunday."
Touching on the Kevin-Prince Boateng injury situation, Sannie said that a decision will be taken soon, after the GFA receives a doctor's report.
"We are waiting for the doctors to report to us later this evening [Tuesday] then we;ll decide whether we will make him part of our team or not."
Ghana will play Egypt on Tuesday, 15 October, 2013 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi. Kick-off is at 1600 local time.
