Stars host Comoros in Kumasi on Tuesday

indexAfter honoring their first leg game against Comoros Islands on Friday which ended in goalless, The Black Stars of Ghana will attempt to give their 2018 World Cup qualification further shot in the arm when they clash in the return leg in Kumasi on Tuesday.

The first leg which many football experts tagged as ‘David and Goliath affair due to Comoros status on the FIFA ranking 186 against 30 could not turn to be what they think as the Stars were held to a barren draw in Moroni.

But the Black Stars led by Coach Avram Grant, with able support from skipper Asamoah Gyan are eager to blush aside the South- Eastern African country to progress to the next stage of the qualifies.

This will be the first time the Stars play at the Baba Yara stadium since they were booed by a section of the Kumasi fans in the game against the kranes of Uganda last year September where they drew 1-1.

And after successfully beating Togo by 3-1 at the Tamale Sports stadium and walloping Mauritius by 7-1 when they opened their World Cup qualification at the Accra sports stadium, they return to the Ashanti Regional capital with high hopes of winning the game to appease the Oseikrom fans.

Knowing the task ahead, the technical team have beef up preparations which saw them train at the Accra Sports stadium yesterday before departing to Kumasi.

Comoros have also promise to repeat the same performance they exhibited on home soil to help them cause an upset in Kumasi.

The winner of the game will advance to the third qualifying round which will have 20 teams. drawn into five round – robin, home- and- away groups of four teams each.
