Ghana manager, Avram Grant, is hoping to have a fully fit squad ahead of Egypt clash in November in the 2018 Russia World Cup qualifiers.

Grant is hoping to have a fully fit Andrew Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah and Asamoah Gyan for Egypt clash as the three players play an important role in the Black Stars’ squad.

Grant said, “There is no doubt that they are top class players and if they are around, that will help,”

“We played some matches without them and the current boys still delivered but if they are around we are stronger.”

“So we want them first to be fit for them and also for us.” He concluded.

Ghana captain and Al Ahli Dubai FC striker denied to Joy fm any fuss between him and deputy captain, Andrew Ayew, saying, “Ex-players saying stuff, may be they might be guessing but it is not like that. For me i don’t see any changes in the team, everything is going well and as i always say- it is when things go wrong, that you get people saying all sort of things.”

“Because if we had beaten the Ugandan’s let’s say six I’m not sure people will be saying there is confusion in the camp but we will continue to work hard and ensure we qualify.”

Egypt is set to host Ghana on November 13 in Borg El Arab stadium, Alexandria, in the second round of the CAF world cup qualifiers.

Youssef Wael is a massive Al Ahly and Manchester United supporter from Cairo, Egypt. One of the few Egyptians who never really wanted to have a career in football, just played it as a hobby. Wael also played squash for 7 years.

    Egypt will come 3rd in the group. Africans are no longer afraid of the arabs in soccer. After what ghana did to egypt last world cup qualifers sent a message to other african nations that the days of arab dominance on african football is over especially now training facilities are available to african countries which they lacked but egypt enjoyed good coaches and facilities for years. Ghana will win the group. MARK MY WORD.
