Match Day 5 of CAF qualifying round
The CAF qualifying round is almost reaching its end with only two more Match Days remaining. The Black Stars will be taking on Ethiopia in the upcoming Match Day 5. The game is scheduled to be played on Sunday, November 18.
The last and final game for the qualifiers will be against Kenya in March 2019. The Black Stars are currently sitting on the third spot of their group in Group F with 3 points, having only played 2 matches.
The matches against Sierra Leone have been cancelled with governing bodies still to decide if Ghana will be awarded the games. Returning as the head coach of the Black Stars for the second time around, James Kwesi Appiah was appointed again in 2017.
He has been urged to add more experienced players to the squad. The other teams fighting for a spot in the Africa Cup of Nations in Group F are Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and Kenya. The qualifying rounds are made up of 12 groups with four teams per group.
The 2019 finals of the Afcon will be played in Cameroon.
The tournament starts on the 15th of June 2019 in Cameroon where the first game will be played in the city of Yaoundé at the Paul Biya Stadium.
Kick off might be the most anticipated and the event will more than likely be the biggest of the tournaments history, with 24 teams competing for the trophy.
