Coach Bob Bradley intends relying on his experience of haven faced Ghana before to help Egypt clinch an unlikely win when both teams square off on Tuesday.
The Black Stars are at home for the first leg of the crucial 2014 World Cup playoff.
Ghana – chasing a third successive World Cup appearance – look to record a resounding win to effectively kill off the tie before the return encounter is played next month.
The Black Stars will however not only be facing the record African Cup winners on Tuesday but also an old foe in coach Bob Bradley who tasted a bitter defeat against Ghana at the 2010 World Cup while he coach of the USA.
The American now looks to recall the experience gathered in his personal defeat to the Black Stars in helping his current team secure what will certainly be a shocking win in Kumasi on Tuesday.
“It helps a little bit [haven played Ghana before], certainly there are a few key players that we remember very well from South Africa 2010 that are still there and still make a big difference in the team,” he said.
“The now have a new coach and some young players so there are changes as well but I think the experience against Ghana and understanding them as a team and the way they play certainly comes to play.”
