Yahaya Mohammed to miss Ethiopia clash


By Edmund Bobie


The locally based Black Stars will need a good result against Ethiopia to progress into the next stage of the Championship of African Nations (CHAN) in South Africa.

Marksman, Yahaya Mohammed, picked up his second booking of the competition against Libya, bringing an instant one game suspension.

It is certainly a blow for the Black Stars with striker Sulley Mohammed, also out of the encounter due to an injury.

Yahaya Mohammed has been impressive in the competition; he scored in the team’s 1-1 draw with Libya.

The player has kept faith with his colleagues, saying 'everybody can play':

''Everybody can play. We have so many strikers including Seidu Bancey and Paul Asare. They are all capable of playing just that we cannot all play at the same time. I have belief in them that they can do it on Tuesday''.

''We are so confident and we are so determined because we know Ethiopia is a very good side, it's unfortunate they lost their first two games. We are going all out and we are not going to underrate them''.

The Stars will play Ethiopia on Tuesday, in the final group fixture.
