Ghana assistant coach Maxwell Konadu says history will not matter when Black Stars and Egypt lock horns in the 2014 World Cup playoffs to decide which country qualifies for the tournament in Brazil.
The two powerhouses on the continent would battle in a two-leg affair on October 15 and November 19 to determine who goes to the World Cup in 2014.
Egypt has won the Africa Cup of Nations seven times with the Black Stars managing four triumphs but Coach Konadu says that would not matter in their impeding clash.
He said the team that would prepare better than the other would pick the solitary slot.
In this regard, the Ghana Coach said the Black Stars would train well in order to beat the North Africans.
Coach Konadu said Ghana would be preparing adequately to counter any tactics that the Egyptians would adopt for the Kumasi game.
He noted that the old tricks that North Africans used to apply against West African teams like the watering of the field would not work against Ghana in the second leg in Egypt.
Coach Konadu said Ghana were currently parading professional and experienced players who would not be overwhelmed by any ‘dirty’ tricks Egypt would adopt.
