Ghana coach Maxwell Konadu believes Saturday’s pre-African Nations Championship friendly against will test his side’s battle-readiness for the tournament.

“This match will help us a lot because it will be the first match away from home for most of these players. Most of them have not tasted international football and this will be a good test for us,” the former Asante Kotoko coach said.

The local Black Stars will face Congo, Libya and Ethiopia in Group C at the tournament and Konadu says the friendly has come in handy.

“Namibia’s style of playing is similar to South Africa and the other teams in the region. So this match will help us when we meet these teams at Chan,” Konadu added.

The friendly match will be played at the Independence Stadium.

Ghana did not play any competitive qualifying matches to reach Chan after their first-round two-legged play-off was declared a walkover following the withdrawal of Benin.

Last month, they drew goalless with Mali at the Accra Sports Stadium and also played

They were beaten 1-0 by Libya in a friendly played in Tunis.
