Wilfred Osei Palmer, Ghana’s management committee member believes that if the Black Stars lose to Egypt it will shatter their dreams of qualifying for the Russia 2016 World Cup.

Palmer revealed that preparations have begun to help the team get back on the right foot, after their slow start in the opening game in their World Cup campaign after drawing at home 0-0 against Uganda.

While group rivals edged out Congo 2-1 in Brazzaville, with the results putting the Pharaohs on top of the group with Ghana trailing with two points behind.

Ghana will face Egypt as the giants clash on 15th November on Egyptian soil.

According to Plamer, a loss to Egypt will make qualifying harder, which is why the Black Stars have lined up a friendly against South Africa to prepare the players, prior to their match against the Egyptians.

Palmer added Ghana will have to work hard to catch up with Egypt saying, “Knowing the task ahead, if we want to get results, we need to fight hard to either close the gap or maintain the two-point gap.”
