    AGAINST NIGER…
    WE CAN BEAT NIGER EASILY. THEY ONLY HAVE 3 DECENT PLAYERS. THEIR ATTACK N MIDFIELD ARE NON CONSISTENT. THEIR DEFENCE HAS LOOPHOLES.
    DANKOWA, MOUSSA, AND CHICOTO ARE THEIR ONLY DECENT PLAYERS. IF U NEUTRALISE THEIR CAPTAIN IN ATTACK, AND CONCENTRATE ON NEUTRALIZING DANKWA N CHICOTO
    IN DEFENCE, NIGER ARE IMPOTENT. AA SHOULD START ASANTE ON THE WING AND KISSI AT LEFT BACK. PERFECT TIME FOR AA TO USE AFFUL ON THE RIGHT AND
    KASA ON THE 11. AA SHOULD START PLAYERS LIKE CLOTTEY, YIADOM SO THEY CAN BUILD THEIR CONFIDENCE GOING INTO THE QUARTERS. WE SHOULD GET AT LEAST
    3 GOALS HERE. USE THIS GAME TO SHARPEN UR STRIKING FORCE N POLISH UR MIDFIELD. 2 TOUCH PER PLAYER, AND PASSING.
    AA DONT START UR BEST STARTERS. NIGER KNOW THEY WILL LOSE AND WILL TRY TOINJURE OUR BEST PLAYERS. IMPORTANT TO SCORE 2 GOALS EARLY
    N REST OUR BEST PLAYERS FOR THE QUARTERS.

    ghana ve 4pts,mali ve 3pts,niger ve 1pt,congo ve 2pts
    ghanasoccernet do ure calculations well
    if win or lose we will qualify

    • Gimli says:

      If their is a winner in the other match, no matter who that might be, Ghana won’t progress to the next stage, if they lose to Niger. In that case, both these teams(Ghana and Niger) will tie in the second place. The first criteria as to which team qualifies, is what hapened in their match. Given the fact that Niger would have won that match, they will go through as second and Ghana will be eliminated as third.

  3. Listo says:

    GSN is correct,if we are to lose,it shouldn’t be 2 or more else we are out when mali or congo wins

  4. Kay says:

    If Ghana fails to beat Niger convincingly then, we are not good enough for the trophy. If we cannot beat Niger, how then can we beat the likes of CIV etc?
