This will make the remaining Group F video game for Ghana against the “Wild Dogs” of Guinea Bissau a decider on Tuesday at New Suez Stadium.
Ghana’s Team F is 1 of the nit-pickiest in the match with all the nations in the group standing in very good positions to qualify for the subsequent round.
Kwesi Appiah’s adult men are in second area with two points, although Guinea Bissau are at the bottom with just 1. This would be the first conference in the heritage in between the two nations.
Ghana has managed only two goals with the Ayew brothers the only players in the workforce to hit the again of the web in the match. Andre and his young brother Jordan scored the plans in the recreation with Benin in the first 50 percent.
Two draws with Benin and Cameroon have not been the great start for Ghana, but the workforce is still in a very good position to make it by means of to the 2nd round.
A big video game awaits the Black Stars in the following round if they can get out of the Group so they will be wanting for a positive effectiveness in fixture knowing a defeat would see their elimination from the AFCON.
Ghana are unbeaten in their last 5 games, but the last 3 in a row have all finished in attracts and that final result is not expected to be fantastic more than enough without having enable from Cameroon in the other team activity. Ghana have struggled to acquire in their 16 online games, profitable only 4 in that run.
Having said that, they now face what quite a few perceive to be the weakest team in the Team in the condition of Guinea- Bissau and the thirst for the three factors from the latter need to imply Ghana have spaces to exploit.
A attract could be sufficient to transfer into the 2nd spherical only if Cameroon beat Benin in the other match in the Team, but Ghana should really want to showcase some of their electrical power ahead of what is probable to be a big match with either Tunisia or Nigeria in the second spherical.
They may perhaps not have been at their most effective in either of their to start with two games, but Guinea -Bissau have kept themselves alive in the competitors battling to a goalless attract with Benin past time out.
That level indicates they maintain their possess destiny in their arms and a gain for them should really be very good plenty of to earn them a spot in the upcoming round.
The Djurtus are nevertheless to find the web at the event in Egypt and would have to do that against Ghana in Suez if they want to win.
Guinea Bissau have gained one of their last 11 game titles and the fact that they have not scored in their last 4 games ought to be a main source of issue for them for a aspect that demands to safe three factors in this recreation.

For Ghana, this does appear to be an great opponent with Guinea- Bissau battling at both ends of the field and if they do open up Ghana should really be in a position to expose them.
This match would be played at 16:00 GMT will be the initially match among the two sides.
Nonetheless considerably would rely on the mother nature of selection mentor Kwesi Appiah would place throughout on the day.
In central defence, Ghana would have John Boye earning a return to the workforce just after a 1 match suspension and would pair with Jonathan Mensah, even though Andy Yiadom and Baaba Rahman are possible to sustain their positions at the wing back.
Should Appiah stick to his midfield environment then workaholic Mubarak Wakaso, Thomas Teye Partey, Andre Aye and Kwadwo Asamoah would male that region with Jordan Ayew even now leading attack with a probable inclusion of Kwabena Owusu.
