Stars are battle ready; amidst uncertainties due to Sierra Leone’s banDespite the uncertainties surrounding the game against the Leone Stars, the Black Stars are ready to take on the Lone Stars of Sierra Leone at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi.
On the back of a Fifa’s ban on Sierra Leone, ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double header, due to governmental interference, Ghana are sticking with preparations for the double header.
Although, Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has petitioned Fifa to lift the ban handed the body last week and wants Caf to set a new date for the double header after a meeting on Monday, it is still unclear whether the game will be honoured as scheduled.
Ghana football’s Normalisation Committee is waiting for a final communiqué from Fifa, according to communications director Dan Kwaku Yeboah.
“We will continue to train and wait for the response from Fifa and Caf on the way forward,” Yeboah told Goal.
“If the game is called off, we’re expecting Fifa to reimburse Ghana so that we can settle the traveling arrangements of our players and other things that went into the preparations for the first leg, including security and miscellaneous,” he added.
Ghana leads the group with three points, with other opponents like Kenya and Ethiopia.
