    is the timing good, as it will be only 9 days to the CAN

  8. Kwame Adu-Gyamfi says:

    I like the matches but I feek they are to close to the tournament date. The players need time to rest and make sure they are cleared for fitness. These friendlies should be played in December or at earlier in January, like from the 1st-5th.

  9. KWAME PITO says:

    GOOD show by GFA. I know they made The 2 matches close so as to reflect Afcon conditions. BUT A.A PLEASE USE YOUR FIRST 11 FOR BOTH MATCHES OOO. WE NEED TEAM COHESION ASAP.
