…Grant left in a fix

Ghana Black Stars head coach Avram Grant is not clear in his head when players of the Black Stars will arrive for Saturday’s AFCON qualifier against Rwanda.

Grant is finding life very difficult as Black Stars coach following orders from the Ministry of Youth and Sports to review his team that will play against the Amauvibi’s of Rwanda.

Ghana has already qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations which will be staged in Gabon next year but their opponents Rwanda will be desperate for a win to boost their chances of making the competition.

According to reports the coach wants to use the game against Rwanda as a test match for the important 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Congo next month.

The Minister of Youth and Sports Nii Lantey Vanderpuye however believes that the nation will benefit financially if home-based players are used for the game as it is a dead rubber.

This latest variance in opinion has left the coach in limbo with uncertainty surrounding the arrival of players and when preparations for the game will begin.

The GFA has however confirmed that the game will be played on Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium no matter what.
