Local Black Coach, Maxwell Konadu’s selection for Sunday’s quarter final game with the Democratic Republic of Congo has received a major boost following the return of Yahaya Mohammed.
Yahaya who has finished serving a one game suspension following card accumulation would be available for selection when Ghana seek revenge over the Congolese at the Free State Stadium on Sunday.
Mohammed had emerged Ghana’s best performer at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) underway in South Africa and his return is expected to provide Konadu options upfront.
Konadu started Asante Kotoko striker, Siedu Bansey in attack in the absence of Mohammed on Tuesday when a second half penalty gifted Ghana all three points in the final Group C game with Ethiopia.
Mohammed’s return gives Konadu an option of playing two tops or leaving the former as the sole attacker.
The Local Black Stars have set their sight on a win against the Leopards. The last time both sides met was in 2009 when Ghana lost 0-2 in the finals of the maiden edition of the championship in Cote de’ Ivoire. GNA
